Updates and New Things to Click On!

Well aren't I just full of news today?  Not only did Idora HQ experience the first Monarch sighting in the front garden (seen here sucking on a Malacothamnus flower), but the website's been updated with pretty new pictures and Facebook folks can now visit a brand new spiffy Facebook page.  (You can also "like" any of the posts you see here with the button dealie at the bottom.)

I forgot how big Monarchs are!  Hopefully this one will enjoy the puny Asclepias fascicularis I planted a few months ago.  An exciting start to the morning and motivation to get all those plants and bulbs in the ground that I've accumulated over the past two months! 


  1. We haven't seen any Monarchs here yet. I can't believe I've never heard of Malacothamnus, and yes, that means I missed your post about it last year...sorry, but it has a lovely bloom, and an even lovelier Monarch perched upon it!

  2. Lucky you! I've only had them fly past my yard.

    Do you want garlic bulbs for your garden? I've got more than I an possibly use. Organic, and California-grown.

  3. Thanks for sharing your adventures! The photos are very impressive, and I learned new information about tarantulas! Enjoy you blog.
