Then a couple days ago, I went to Walmart and saw the same thing. I'm so tickled to see this!
A shot of a robin on a fence post. Unfortunately it turned its head at the last second.

This is the last time Thor will lay down in the garlic boat. Don finished the garden fence (against cows, but not deer) today. Whoo-hoo! Now I can plant in safety.
Incoming thunderstorm. It wasn't terribly impressive...

A couple of swallows silhouetted on the garden fence.
Don built a light-weight PVC-and-chicken-wire fence for the garden, wide enough to drive the tractor through. In this case, the gate doesn't have to be sturdy; it just needs to serve as a deterrent.
Here the gate is up temporarily. The post on the left will be replaced with a railroad tie, and there will be a board and an additional bit of field fence stretched across the top to keep deer from jumping over.
