My newly landscaped garden is doing well despite the horrific heat and drought. I have been very pleased with my new "dry creek bed" garden area. Throughout the spring I had a multitude of bulbs and enjoyed my new Japanese maple tree. The bird bath is a very popular
place, as are the numerous feeders. Tim and I sit on the patio and have our morning coffee while observing the Lesser Goldfinches eat thistle from both the feeder and the dried coneflower pods, which I left deliberately for just such activity. The black-chinned hummingbirds have been numerous.
