And I'm not finished. I'm putting it on with a brush. For one reason, it is so windy today. The storms will be tomorrow. Plus, I ran out of stain. I didn't go buy more, because the rain is coming. I blocked off the steps, to keep everyone off until it dries. I'm going by instructions; twenty-four hours.
Never mind! That didn't work. I looked out the door and there she was. Luckily it was dry enough not to matter.
This morning before getting started with my work, I looked out the back window and saw a cardinal building a nest in the sweet olive.
It is hard to see her in this picture; she just blends in. She was bringing another twig. I hope she continues to build it here.
