The Acorn Woodpeckers are raising another baby in the stalk of an Agave Salmiana. I've been watching birds fly back and forth for a couple of weeks, and today I finally got a good look at the baby.

It's always a treat to see Paul Carlisle's tuberous begonias. I think he is the best tuberous begonia grower on the west coast of the United States. He grows healthy plants with nice big blooms and the variety of colors is mesmerizing.

On the dead pine tree trunk, Mike has planted an assortment of begonias, orchids, bromeliads, tillandsias and an ivy. At the top is this Tillandsia secunda that has a large inflorescence with offsets (pups) all over it.

Today the House Finches are harvesting the sunflower seeds. The other day they were eating the leaves of the sunflower plant (I didn't have my camera). I had been wondering what was making the large holes in the leaves? I'm glad to see they have moved on to a more nutritious part of the plant!
