Today is sunny and mild.

I fed the birds.

We cut brush in the streetside yard.

My Cornelian cherry dogwood is fruiting for the first time that I've seen!  :D  This thing is 10-15 years old.  The fruits are fingertip sized, mostly still green or yellow-green, but one is turning orange.  They're supposed to have sort of a cranberry flavor.  I don't know if I'll even get any, as birds love them.

EDIT 7/28/20 -- I picked a handful of blackberries.

EDIT 7/28/20 -- I picked up sticks in the west half of the south lot and along the street.
