As I was leaving my house today, I discovered a bird that looks like a red finch or sparrow is building a rather messy nest over my front porch light fixture. We don't use the front porch that often so it shouldn't be a problem.
I spotted the gopher snake again today hanging out under the laundry room. Or it could be a different snake entirely. Its not like they have name tags.
The joshua tree is in full bloom. They remind me of popcorn balls.
