Tree Tobacco

Ever since I got the tank project done I've yearned to have the tank ringed with Tree Tobacco. Today I planted my first of nearly two dozen sprouts I've been nurturing. I'm afraid to plant too many in case we get some really frigid weather yet this winter.


I'm hoping that by planting it up against the tank the warmth from the tank water will keep it from freezing. I put a little windbreaker around it that I'll remove once it gets well established. Yes, that's a caterpillar on the above photo. They're everywhere. Going to be a good butterfly spring I think.



Enjoying more flowers every time I go to the oasis. Not so many birds with this furtive Sharp-shinned Hawk lurking around.


Lyreleaf Jewelflower (Streptanthus carinatus)
