Thoughts of rainwater - and new native plants

My rain barrels are full and I've been toying with the idea of getting a 300 gallon storage barrel. I think I need to chill out and recognize that I can't hoard every drop of water that falls on my property. But I do want one. I should get my attic insulated instead. That would be better for the planet probably.

OK, last Friday - yes, it's been a week - I went to the members-only plant sale at the Wildflower Center. It was jam packed with people. I was all abuzz and just grabbed plants willy nilly. Here's a picture of what $50 will buy you at the plant sale.

And check out this picture of a budding prickly pear. I didn't even see the bug until I cropped this picture!
