A view to the south
A view to the north
And a view to the northeast.
The nights have been getting much colder and snow in the mountains.
All the leaves on my trees are all but gone.
But a few of the days when the wind is not blowing 40mph the days are still warm enough to get out and do a few things, even Mocho with his thin coat agrees.
Our first ground covering snow, not much but a sign of the times.
I went to C.S.R. nursery http://www.csr-inc.com/nursery.htm for my birthday and I bought a few things for my self. This is a very cool nursery that only sells plants that are native to Idaho and within 50 miles of the border. I wish I would have found this nursery earlier in the season, but than maybe it is good that I did not. It can be hard on the pocketbook. lol
A very good wildlife plant, good feed and perfect cover for reptiles like the famed hornytoad. This a grey/white plant with a very desert feel. Good for the cactus/desert garden.
And some shots to show how well the micro climates work.
South-side, snow all but gone!
West side is good for micro climates, but snow still there.
Grass make good to soften hard scape.
A big Jerusalem Cricket.
This guy needs to find a place for winter.
