For 10 days, my quince was the beloved haunt of both a Rufus and a Calliope hummingbird.

Rockscaping will not keep the planet alive.

Saving water? Funny, the words we use.

View of a Wasteland of Weeds. No insects, though, and few birds. 10 years ago, monarch butterflies lived here. No more.

Only life will keep life alive.

Blessed be.
