Thanks much, Booboo!

amelanchier, just what I said, but I'll get the title and publishing date. I tried to get them to you while they were here, but they needed just two pix to complete the book and the other was of a leucistic or partial albino bird. My DEC friend Connie know I had pix of the leucistic Red-tail in Cambria, so when Connie sent me the email it was because she thought of me with the balcony garden and knowledge of the hawk.

First I contacted Randi and sent pix of the hawk which they were interested in finding the bird to get their own photos. I said I had a balcony garden if they were interested. I had no idea they were not in Buffalo, but Rochester is pretty close so they drove in. They had another appointment after their visit here and then had to return home. They had to hike the Hudson Valley for another book the next day!

I told them about your project in case they might need a contact like you in the future. They've done 29 books already! Nice life, meeting people, going places, writing about it and getting paid! Randi said she knew about WG but I'll send her the link too.

Sry, missed it the 1st time! Nifty... Eventually that trumpet vine should attract hummers. I saw that you took a pic of one somewhere in Buffalo. I haven't seen any at all this year, despite having everything they could want.

Fine. Tell them what you know:
"
  1. Go to the garden center and buy stuff
  2. Get on line with ~Wildlife Gardeners~
Then sit back and let the spiders entertain you until your tomatoes ripen!"

...but I'd add

3. water

Sage,
Your balcony plantings have shown us that lots of things can grow in pots, and small spaces.

You're an inspiration to other visitors to this forum who also live in condos or apartments or have limited gardening space.

Seeing the photos of your balacony jungle gives others ideas for starting their own balcony jungles, or even just a few potted tomatoes.
