Volunteer Lupines Increase

I was  checking the two patches where Scrub Lupines sprouted from an old seed bank and discovered  four new seedlings. That brings the  total in both patches to nine plants.

If some of them survive to maturity and flower at least once, that could help to replenish the seed bank here.

I also found a shed snake skin in a bush and suspect Brown Thrashers are nesting near the planting site.

This place always has something to learn.

My  other  purpose for the visit was to take advantage of the recent rain to see what trash has been exposed in the sand. I brought home a bucketful.
