I've been watching the Brasil (Condalia hookeri) tree in my front yard from the window today. It's a great wildlife habitat tree! I watered it good recently, so it's blooming and putting on a good show as far as what is flying around it. Butterflies and insects are swarming around its small green flowers! That nectar must be really good. Sometimes birds or hummingbirds come around looking for insects to eat. And of course, Brasil can have small fruits that are mighty tasty and birds and other wildlife love them.

I would feel more optimistic about a bright future for man if he spent less time proving that he can outwit Nature and more time tasting her sweetness and respecting her seniority. E. B.White

Linda, I sure wish we had those here, but I have never seen one, I guess they just don't make up here.
Thank you for telling us about it. Smiling
