I was doing a round of fall pruning, thinking about taking hedge clippers to my Salvia 'Winnifred Gilman,' when I heard some peeps and cheeps. I stood still.
Bushtits! Some of my favorite little brown birds!
They descended on Winnifred and infiltrated her twigs branches so delicately, and with terrific acrobatic style they ate her seeds.
I only had my little waterproof Canon on me so the photos are not the best, but still - bushtits! Can't lose!
|Nearby, an Anna's hummingbird was feeding on a few late blooms of Galvezia speciosa.|
|And as ever in the garden, the curious fence lizards kept me company too.|
So - needless to say I'm not going to be trimming that salvia back any time soon!
