Found in our kitchen.
Been seeing other Hypericum species in the hills; thought to throw in this ubiquitous landscaping favorite. Don't know what it's potential to be invasive; but we are certainly giving it every chance in using it to cover dry slopes everywhere.
Love to see these flowers...
Thought I'd add to my nightshade collection.
Quite a few of these distinctive webs right now. Sadly unable to get good shots of the architects.
Location approximate; but easy to find just on the north side of the trail, about 1/3 0f the way up creek trail to the pond...
Western Pond Turtles basking in the middle of Turtle Pond.
Found this little critter while exploring a hidden creek near Altruria Heights.
Guessing it's some sort of damselfly, but will leave the ID-ing up to the experts!
Goats brought in to graze on grasses at work.
Never realized how playful they could be, or just how wide their vocal range is! (I once mistook their cries for a child crying out for help.)
One of them even half-stood up to eat some of the Eucalyptus leaves--wow!
Last time I saw pigeons were back when I lived in a crowded urban city environment--so somehow the sight of these two was both uncommon and exciting!
Saw this little caterpillar moving across the sidewalk towards a hedge of rosemary.
Saw three turkeys strutting across the meadow outside of work while walking home.
Spider with large pedipalps--probably a male?
Thought it might be a grass spider, but it seems to be lacking vertical stripes on its body.
