Hi there gardening friends,
I have some exciting garden writes coming up. Slowly I'm getting inspired again to work my magic on the El Presidio Gardens. As we get further into the month, I'll be doing a close up on our gardens here. It's just been so hot and nasty that I hate being outside. I water and that's all! However, today I'm doing some plant shopping. Last night, we had a wonderful rain event that made me look at the gardens differently....and I actually felt inspired to work outside again. While construction goes on around the property ever so slowly, there are parts that are making me happy. The fern garden looks amazing right now and it has been attracting butterflies and at least 3 different kinds of hummers. Here's a vid of our thunderstorm and rain event last night. And my final thought....my white cat, Luna, has figured out that when I take my camera out to snap pictures, it's usually because there are birds outside. Now that's one smart and annoying little kitty. She usually chases all the birds away.
