After 5 mornings of steady work in the garden everything is looking much improved. The bird bath is clean again and perched on the rim are two cast iron birds that my son sent me. They are perfect for holding the drip filler in place.
Unfortunately one of the foxes failed to return yesterday morning and I am fearful that he or she may have met an untimely death at the hands of the coyotes. We often hear them yelping in the dead of night. So, I may have my front garden back again and will be able to start on the weeding there. The Lindheimer senna is flowering and like many of my plants is self seeded.
Inland sea oats dangle on the ends of their stems and waft in the breeze. They make a wonderful arrangement with Pyracantha berries in the winter.
