The mirrored boxes on the wall are nearly 10years old. I saw the idea in a Sunset magazine and thought they would be just perfect for this wall. In the spring the cardinal usually spends a lot of time looking at his reflection in the mirror and pecking away at the intruder.
Continuing down the dry creek it feels good to be able to see the structure once again. I think I will be more selective next year in how many bluebonnets get to grow in here. It is always interesting to see what is growing underneath. A few feather grasses, mullein and one Texas sage seedling. Keepers for now.
The granite parking area is looking pretty bad but it will be a few more days before I can remove these plants. I went out yesterday to snip off some of the seed heads but most are not quite ready for cutting and pulling. It was fun to have the wonderful display but now I'm ready for a cleaner look.
