Today is partly sunny and pleasantly mild, but very buggy.

I fed the birds.  I've seen house finches and doves.

I picked a handful of mulberries.

I also put out some frozen black raspberries to macerate for ice cream topping.  (Frozen-and-thawed ones break down better because the ice crystals have ruptured the cell membranes.)

EDIT 7/9/21 -- I planted more flowers in the container garden.  

EDIT 7/9/21 -- We burned off the firepit.

EDIT 7/9/21 -- I check the fire, which has burned down nicely.  Then I planted more seeds in the container garden.
