But I do have to get up early to do it because at 8:11 am it's already 89 degrees (F). In creating this landscape around our home, my request was for plants that attract butterflies and birds. I'm so grateful for that, as I can sit here and see several types of butterflies, black white, yellow, orange. I don't know their names, but I certainly enjoy their beauty and grace.
Bird song is everywhere, mourning doves cooing, quail calling to the family and hummers chirping at each other. Just a moment ago, I saw a cardinal in the top of the tree across the way.
Now I see a rabbit on the walking path. We have a love hate relationship with them, as they eat plants. Having lost several to their voracious appetites, I think I've finally figured what to plant that they won't eat.
Hope you find beauty where you are today.
