Pictures are from 11/9/14. We got a bit of rain (0.4 inches) and some of the plants are greening up again. Then we had warm, dry days - not what we really need this time of year. Migratory and resident birds are still eating seeds and insects. We'll hold off pruning the best seed plants for a bit. That makes the garden look a bit less tidy, but delayed pruning is more life-friendly in this year of drought.
|Nice day for sitting on the back porch!|
