Current Photos of Mother Nature's Backyard


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;
 unpruned behind


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.
