High winds = low work. Problem was I slacked off all morning while it was calm then the winds just kept building throughout the day. Patched the line to the IP cam and ran it through some conduit but just couldn't bring myself to dig the trench...at least it will be tougher for a longhorn to chew through for now.
Blooms are sparse this year due to lack of rain but I make an effort to take notice as they occur. This tiny flower on a small bush is one of my favorites - Feather Dalea / Dalea formosa. (thanks to Burr Williams from the Sibley Nature Center in Midland, TX for the ID.) 82,99,47,0,W
