Wildlife

Once or twice people have asked if we get any deer damage in the garden. I always say that any deer that braves freeway traffic to get to the garden will be welcome to any nourishment it can get!

We do get some wildlife at P. Garden, and today I saw a hummingbird feeding on the Mexican sage! (Yes, Annelle!) Always a sign of joy for me. What else?

Birds:
Crows
Mourning Doves
Pigeons
Robins
Starlings
Mockingbird
Sparrows
Hummingbird of some sort
Ravens

Insects:
Worms (various types, and lots of them)
Ladybugs (lots, with various spot patterns)
Butterflies (Swallowtail, Cabbage White, Monarch? At least three kinds)
Dragonflies
Bees
Ants
Slugs
Snails
Spiders
Aphids...
Probably millions of other things I don't know about

Amphibians:
California Slender Salamander

Mammals:
Humans
Dogs
Probably the occasional cat, at night.

Have you seen any other species in the garden?
