Our get-away home in the woods of Eastern Washington is our quiet solitude. We are always reminded that we share this piece of heaven with nature and the many creatures, big and small, that live here year round. The neighborhood squirrels always know there are peanuts for them to gather at our house when we’re here. This box on the tree was here when we moved in, obviously used for many years before. We’ve continued the practice and our woodland friends seem to appreciate it. Even when we aren’t watching them, the sound of the wooden door opening and closing through the day and night is a pleasant reminder they’re here.
