Something (or someone, depending on how anthropomorphic you want to be) left a mess out at the edge of the back yard.
There’s a chair that I leave there, right on the other side of the sidewalk from where yesterday’s picture was taken, and on the next day there was a pile of debris there.
Not that a pile like this is necessarily unexpected given the critters that live about, but it is notable in that it’s the first time I’ve seen it in the 2+ years we’ve lived here. So, something new is happening, and that could be a clue to the week’s mystery.
Lots of pine trees here, and lots of pine cone detritus on the sidewalk. Who could our new suspect be?
