Today Jack heard the Sandhill Cranes. I hope to capture a photo of them soon. Their sound is so soothing and it is so wonderful that we can find them here in Texas as well as New Mexico. Here is a video so that you can hear their call.

Another visitor we have is the Black Swallowtail caterpillar. I discovered them this morning and they really do like the fennel. Glad I wasn't planning to cook with it.

The Gulf Muhly is really colorful at this time of year. Nothing can beat the sun coming through the purple seed heads.
