Have also seen or heard the following around the yard

  • Yellow Bellied Sapsuckers calling from the trees.
  • Cooper Hawk
  • Red Tailed Hawk
  • A male and female pair of Towhees scratching the ground under the bald cypress trees by the side of the house.

January 8: Have seen two small moths on buildings in last couple of days.

 

Garden

in spite of night temperatures in the low 30’s some things are thriving:

  • Bok Choy is doing well
  • The sage is growing fresh leaves

Cut back the herbs and made a wreath of rosemary, oregano, sage and fennel to hang on our front door.

Pulled up all the irrigation hoses in preparation for the new garden design.
