We recently purchased this Bad Boy zero turn mower to make faster work of lawn care since moving to our one-acre property.

There are other places on my house, other than the front porch, that would be a perfect location for the barn swallows to build a nest.


Glistening cobalt blue above and tawny below, Barn Swallows dart gracefully over fields, barnyards, and open water in search of flying insect prey. Look for the long, deeply forked tail that streams out behind this agile flyer and sets it apart from all other North American swallows. Barn Swallows often cruise low, flying just a few inches above the ground or water. True to their name, they build their cup-shaped mud nests almost exclusively on human-made structures.

Spotted this large bowl at an area thrift/vintage store, and decided to bring it home with me.  A great find for $4.50!
