Harvested Seeds

I tossed the seeds around in my courtyard garden. Saved the poofs. Maybe they can be a potential art material.

Beautiful wings and fun barbed feet.

Removing Plants from Succulent Garden

Even though the garden is in the sun the majority of the day, many of the plants have become elongated. Decided to remove all of the plants, to pot some up, and relocate the rest to other gardens.

Cactus and Callistemon Flowers

Tuesday, May 5th, 2020

When I purchased the Callistemon, the plant ID stated the flowers would be yellow. Not keen on the brilliant red, but bees and hummingbirds seem to be attracted to the flowers.

One of many bees enjoying the Callistemon (bottlebrush).
