A Wren visits....

Opened the greenhouse this evening after work and found this visitor. I've left the door ajar for him to fly out when he wants to. Lovely little bird and the closet I've ever knowingly been to a wren. Didn't make a sound except for hopping about amongst the cacti.

Winter Survival

Pleased to report that so far, all of the cacti in the greenhouse have survived the winter. However, it's only when the temperature warms up will it be known what damage has been done. Updates soon.
