I love seeing the sun light them up . . . which is why I haven't been able to bring myself to tear them down yet. Vines growing on the screens -- I can hear my mother fussing right now.
Someone did tear down part of them and my money is on this young fella. He's been hitting the front porch in search of spilled dog food and the bird feeders for sunflower seed. He's darling, of course, but he has his little ways -- digs in my potted plants and poops in the bird feeder.
