Brittlebush is a common desert shrub that gets the name because its stems can break off easily. It's in the same family as the sunflower.


Linking with Monday Mellow Yellows

Have a wonderful week!

Sam still likes to visit our yard. The birds don't seem to be bothered by him.

I keep experimenting with growing vegetables.

collard greens

warbler, verdin, hummingbird, vireo

We hung up a new thistle seed sock and the finches found it immediately.
