Current Photos of Mother Nature's Backyard

 
The garden has all the signs of late summer/early fall.  The buckwheats now combine pink and white flowers with orange-brown seed heads. Nice contrasts with evergreen shrubs. Many butterflies, other native pollinators and dragonflies (see below). Come see them this Sun. (8/14 - 1:00-4:00) or next Sat. (8/20 - 1:00-4:00 p.m.).  These pictures are from 8/13/16.
