You can judge a garden by the company it keeps. Regular visitors and inhabitants let you know that it is healthy and a good place to live. This spider web showed up a few mornings ago. We have a good collection of insects in the garden, both damaging and those that feed on them.
We get regular visits from opossum and raccoon, even here in the middle of urban LA. Birds flock in, even though they aren’t exotics like some people attract, but seeing a Cooper’s Hawk up-close and personal is always a treat.
What visiting and living in your garden besides the plants and trees themselves? What does that tell you about the “State of your garden”?
