Touchdown at Wildwood

The entrance to Wildwood underwent some major changes this past year.  Mainly, we eliminated four wind damaged trees.

Suddenly, the area was sunny. Really sunny. And really bare.

We moved some good soil from another location on the property to create a planting area.  We used the John Deere to move in some large lichen covered boulders.  We positioned a large twisting oak branch within the boulder groupings.  We planted Joe Pye Weed, Vernonia, Matilija Poppy and Lomandra.

We were missing something though.  Then, the Egret touched down.  Now that the Egret likes it, we think we're on the right track.
