Pictures are from 10/26/14. The days are getting shorter and cooler. We still haven't gotten any measurable rain, but foggy mornings have helped. We are working our way through the fall pruning. Migratory and resident birds are eating seeds and insects. We'll hold off pruning the best seed plants for a bit.
|Pruning is progressing - pruned California sagebrush (Artemisia californica) in foreground;|
|A little shade is still welcome in Mother Nature's Backyard|
|It's been a tough year for wildlife - we'll not prune Buckwheats and other plants until birds are|
done with the seeds
|The rain garden (watered every 2-3 weeks) provides a green oasis|
|The Blue elderberry is almost dormant. We'll prune when the days get a little cooler.|
