"It's A Jungle Out There"

The backyard is so busy, with all kinds of activity. Last night's single cactus flower is closing up forever. There are birds of all sorts coming and enjoying the scraps of angel food cake and sourdough rolls. Cactus wren are perched on the cactus, poking at the ripe, red, cactus fruits. Hummingbirds, and the occasional butterfly, are hovering over the shrubs covered with yellow flowers. Woodpeckers come and tap on the side of the house. A sole dragonfly circles overhead. Lizards scamper across the gravel. Lots going on out there...just the way I like it in my little world.
