Warm, humid and windy here in Dayton. Still, a nice 40+ mile day on the bike. What a difference some new components make. Riding in to work early this morning with the birds singing and so many of the fragrant trees and shrubs in bloom I was reminded of how fortunate I am to be able to live this bicycle commuter lifestyle! As I was checking on the “big” garden and admiring some of my wife’s creations in other garden areas this evening some of our many weathered birdhouses caught my eye. There are several that I’m very fond of – particularly since I built them from old ladders and barn siding – but I thought I’d share this little gem that has been through half a dozen rehabs over the years – bonsoir.
