Garden Critters

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.
