Holiday Photos

This year's holiday card will be canine friendly.

Benson is a cocker spaniel poodle mix that is a new addition to the Wildwood family.  This is his first holiday with us so he's featured on the card.

The backdrop is a manzanita with tiny white blooms in November!  John Dourley is a low growing ground cover variety that is quite vigorous.  We like it better than Emerald Carpet with its glacial growth habit.

Of course Benson only cares that he gets treats for sitting still.

Crazy Happenings

Yesterday evening, something caught my attention.  First it was the noise - a loud fluttering, squawking, chirping, crunchy cacophony.  Then I saw what all the fuss was about.

The parrots of Telegraph Hill were having a party on a fruiting olive.  And by parrots I mean at least fifty.  They were hopping around the branches gorging themselves on ripe olives.

Tropical meets Mediterranean!

What's next?
