It's nice to be back home.
Our family arrived back late due to some extra sightseeing in Fredericksburg, TX.
It's always strange to get back to your garden at night after being away for a time.
I was the last inside after unloading our car and stopped to look up at the full moon.
It was a very quiet night when suddenly I heard a screech owl close by. Next came a tiny squeeeeck, then all was silent. Nature is close by in this garden and goes on just fine without me.
This, by the way, is a mother screech owl that has 3 very cute babies. I got a glimpse of them last week and even tried to take a picture. It was impossible, so I just enjoyed watching them.
Such is life at Tropical Texana.


  1. Do you have an owl box or were they nesting in a tree? We are hopeful for inhabitants in our owl box which my h built this year. I am told it may take a year or two before they come. Glad you had a nice trip. Mm, Fredericksburg peaches.

  2. Thanks for visiting.:-)
    They live up in one of the giant trees and are very hard to find except at dusk. I have not tried and owl box, but I'm eager to build one by next year. I'll try to find the other Austin gardener who has pictures of their baby owls.
    Hang in there.
    They are really cute!
