Basically, about the only thing blooming is the ocotillo, which means the hummers are nectaring at the ocotillo and not at the feeders. My sister and I looked hard to find anything else in bloom to show a group of naturalists who visited today.

Tomorrow there'll be a very large group from the Native Plant Society of Texas. Wish visits could coincide with when things are blooming and ocotillo is not blooming.
The Faxon Yucca is still blooming, as is the Guayacan, so I guess it could be worse.
I have lived in the Christmas Mountains since 1976, and started my oasis in 1996. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for visiting instructions. No minors. Pet rules are the same as for Big Bend National Park.
