I hope the information in these pages is a source of inspiration for you in some way. Any additions to these pages can be found by clicking on the Whats New Page.

wildflower Gardening For Wildlife...

The garden in these pages is about a small oasis that was created in the suburban surroundings of North Central Texas. It consists of a mixture of mostly native and adapted drought tolerant plants and is Certified with both the National Wildlife Federation & Texas Parks & Wildlife as a Backyard Habitat / Texas Wildscape, resulting in a "Best of Texas Backyard Habitat" certification.
I consider gardening for nature to be very important, giving back what has been taken from it due to increased habitat destruction.
More about gardening for Wildlife, Birds, Hummingbirds, Bees & Butterflies can be found on the Gardening for Wildlife page.

binoculars Birding...

I love to bird! From watching the common backyard birds to going away on field trips to other places in search of new birds, it is one of the most enjoyable hobbies I have. It can be done anywhere, at any time and can be done without any major expense, although be warned, once hooked there are always more places to visit, more toys to buy...!
Visit my Birding Page for more on this great hobby.

Although I no longer host a Purple Martin colony, I have included a page about the trials and errors that I have experienced over the past 16 years of Martin landlording.
