I halfheartedly removed some of the pond-weed roots from the tank, but it's such a hopeless task that I soon quit. It does make good mulch though. I'm sure I'll "harvest" more of it when the tank is drier.
I observed a couple of Aoudad on the slopes west of the oasis late this morning. It's not very often that they're seen, so I'm always thrilled, even though, technically, they're undesirable exotics.
The Whitethorn Acacia sure knows how to put on a good bloom.
