|I found a few pieces of this 'Blue Spruce' Sedum, which is planted at the top of the waterfall, floating in the stream|
|I planted this 'Blue Spruce' Sedum at the top of the waterfall earlier this spring, hoping it will eventually obscure the plastic. I've also found a handful of rocks that have been knocked into the weir.|
|I've also found lots of shredded water hyacinth, which I planted in the streambed for the first time this year. I think she has been rooting around in it, looking for snails.|
|The water hyacinth has multiplied quite a bit, but so far no sign of flowers. I hope she leaves it alone.|
|I found this on the back "lawn." All those bits and pieces are made of feathers, fibers and dried moss, which makes me think it was a bird's nest that she knocked out of a tree and tore apart.|
|One of the larger chunks -- but no sign of eggs or baby birds|
And here is the best evidence yet that the raccoons have returned -- a video taken by my son when he visited a couple of weekends ago. There was a lot of speculation at the time that it was Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy, looking for Groot.
|Groot, out in my garden, sitting on the recycled concrete wall. I made him from a castor bean root, and posted about creating him here.|
