Recently we took a walk just looking at the property to see what was going on.
One scene we will always find is cedars or Blue Junipers. They range in size from those just coming up to tall mature ones that are about 12′ tall. As soon as they are cut down or pushed over, roots and all, others will spring up.
The only good thing about them is that they are green. Also, the birds like the berries. See previous post about junipers.
This picture should have been shown on Valentine’s Day. Wonder how long it took for these rocks to get this smooth. The water has not been high enough or strong enough to accomplish that since we’ve had the property.
In an earlier post, http://weedinwaterinwatchin.com/?cat=135, I showed pictures of old rusty salt licks that were used years ago. This is an updated model made of polyurethane.
Even in rocky caliche, sturdy Sweet William or Prairie Verbena (Verbena bipinnatifida) pops up before spring. See Prairie Verbena post. http://weedinwaterinwatchin.com/?cat=111
These pictures give a glimpse of the plain and the pretty.
