Nature Photography: Seeding the Barrel

The gales of yesterday brought a stranger into town. Its name? Well, it’s called Rain. A real rarity around here.

A few minutes after I took this photo, the rain ran away from Tucson. So much for our warm welcome and unforgettable hospitality.

In other news: A neighbor put a wine barrel out for the recent Brush and Bulky pickup. I found some other goodies in his castoff pile, and he saw me carrying them away.

Next thing I knew, he had the wine barrel loaded onto a wheelbarrow and it was rolling into my back yard. Where it has since been filled with compost and is newly planted with spaghetti squash seeds…

What’s with the dried out agave leaves? I put them in the barrel to keep feral cats out, and so far, those leaves are working quite well.
