New Plant and New Bird

I learned a new plant today, the Wild Senna. I almost weeded it, but then thought better, and I'm glad I didn't. Apparently it's rare-ish. And useful as a laxative, in case anyone's looking.

This little waxwing apparently fledged too early. He's so cute; I hope he makes it!

  1. I love Senna. The size and arrangement of the leaves has a special feel. And it's the host for the Cloudless Sulphur butterfly (Phoebis sennae) caterpillar. Extra bonus! Enjoy!
