Excuse my absence...the PC has been in computer hospital for the last few days.
One thing we have in plentiful supply in Lone Butte is rocks. Big rocks, small rocks, rough rocks, smooth rocks, volcanic rocks, we have them all. They're everywhere. Over the last few days we (mostly Mike) took a bunch of rocks, and made them into something quite beautiful. Unfortunately, Blogger doesn't want to upload photos of our new perrenial garden right now. Will try again tomorrow.
The veggie gardening is coming along...a few more things to get into the ground still, but we're well on the way.
Birds of note over the last few days...a merlin, and a great grey owl. Of all the hummingbirds who are frequenting the feeder, the most fearless are the male caliopes. There was one feeding out of the feeder when I was hanging it up the other day. That happened last year too.
Things are very dry here. We've had a couple of brief showers in the past few weeks, but nothing substantial. I kind of wish it would rain.
