Our odd weather patterns this year has driven me to re-think some things.  Some questions I'm asking:  How do I better protect my soil?  Are there ways to better utilize the space I have to reduce water needs?  What hardscaping do I need to do for next year?  Checking out pots and items soon to be on clearance; what would be helpful?…

"Patricia, that is sad about loosing so many finches, the white crowned sparrows are so cute, we get them in the spring for several weeks, they flipped seed around and dig to find more.   They would eat under the feeders so none of the seed…"
