A family of quail is living in our front garden. I see them at the most inopportune times, and by the time I find my camera, they are gone. Today my husband saw them. I grabbed my camera, and this guy was posing for all the world to see. I'll stay on the lookout for his family.
I have Russian sage in a nearby flower bed. I love this plant and see no need for anything else in my yard, although there are a few other plants growing.
