Hot dry season

May and June can be the hottest, driest time of year. I hope this year won't be brutal. My lovely verbena patch is fading fast. I even watered it, but didn't help. It looks good in the cooler months but by now has pretty much gone to seed. Only saw an intrepid bee fly (?) on it this afternoon.

Although my dragonfly guide says Filigree Skimmers fly all year, I just today saw my first one for the year at the oasis. I think she was freshly hatched and drying her wings.

Birding is still slow at CMO even though migration should be well under way. Plenty of birders though.
