For all the amazing success I have had with my little bit of garden in my lot here
|My morning glories are really turning into something to behold. This little guy didn't even sprout until July and now here he is blooming in October!|
But then again - the caliche' desert is full of amazing wildflowers...so I have been waiting for the wildflowers in my nearest patch of desert to make seeds. The plan is to collect them and plant them here in my caliche where they will grow and be happy and carefree. As natives they won't require a lot of watering or pampering. My kind of garden.
So off I went on my walk. Flowers. Seedheads. I began literally stuffing them in my pockets - but then found a bag caught in a mesquite bush that was just right and went on collecting them.
And then at some point as I took a few steps, bowed down to a plant and asked if I might have some seeds, gathered a few, stood, walked to another plant and asked if I might have some seeds, gathered a few, repeat, repeat, re - gee - I'm trick or treating!
I have a rule about things that have thorns or stickers in the yard (NO) so I didn't stop at every plant! Here are some of my contributors. I don't really know their names although I generally know their families.
For instance, this roadrunner was trick or treating, too.
