My garden isn't a unified, pretty sight. It's a bunch of plants plopped down here and there, and I'm sure any container garden of mine would be the same. I liked those sites because they showed that with planning, your balcony can be as pretty or useful as a landscaped bed.

That way you get to pretend you're wandering through the woods and hoping you don't get poison ivy.

If it doesn't I'm sure there's a desert dweller or 2 here that can suggest replacement plants for your cactus garden that will take the cold and still come back.

Default ~February Event - Return of the Peregrines!

An exciting day - Joint effort of the DEC and SUNY@Buffalo

As we approached the university to meet up with the DEC person responsible for getting a nest box installed, we spotted the male Peregrine Falcon on the VA Hospital! The Peregrines hadn't been seen since October so this was very exciting to all of us!

We hung around for a couple hours and saw the Pefa flying around the tower where the nest box is being installed. Here's the Pefa on the VA.

He was waiting for you to deliver his nest box - what took you so long?

Nice shot!

It was such a long and complicated process! The birds will be so happy but they won't have a clue how it got there!

What was long and complicated? Getting the project approved and making it happen, or the actual installation of the box?
