There has been a lot of action in the Demo Garden this fall, and during the first days of winter. Here are just a few photos from recent weeks. The garden, with its many drought-tolerant native plants, is so important to local wildlife as a source of food and shelter.
This squirrel was spotted in the garden in December.
Some resident acorn woodpeckers enjoyed the garden’s birdbath.
A hummingbird was spotting drinking nectar from our Island Snapdragon, a beautiful California native plant (galvezia speciosa).
A California thrasher took in the sun perched on a California native buckwheat (eriogonum).
A young scrub jay found a comfortable perch.
And a hawk stopped by for a visit.
