It was just the day to break out the new gloves and pruning shears, some of my 'gift' from Gardeners' Supply.
It was a day to work out in the front courtyard. This little guy was a gift from a friend and I thought a good place for him was next to the Whale's tongue agave. Our real roadrunner never manages to find his way into this garden and he probably wouldn't recognize himself if he did. As I was working I heard the real road runner calling on the other side of the wall. His three note call has been heard frequently in recent days. I wonder if he is looking for a mate? Even with all the sightings of roadrunners around our house I have never yet found a nest or seen any young ones.
