Back near the car we spotted this flower stalk emerging from the ground. What a bizarre bloom! It was the size of an artichoke or a small pineapple!
Last time I was at the cabin a robin flew into one of the large windows. Most of the windows have glazing bars but a couple of the bigger ones don't. Thankfully the robin flew off after sitting on the deck, a little dazed, for a while. When I got home I searched for something to hang in the window to help the birds see the glass. I found this little stained glass chickadee in this Etsy shop based in Canada. It looks really pretty hanging in the window, I love it! There was no sun this weekend to shine through the colored glass but maybe next time there will be.
