This year I cheated and seeded some debris clumps with wildflower seeds. In past years I let even the most obnoxious weed grow in them to see what survives in that environment. I’m watering these more this year to see what effect that has on their diversity. Today a baby’s breath pops out of one of the debris clumps. Lost island is out of focus and in the background — as well as my neighbor’s third floor deck.
