I've managed to keep the Foxgloves alive this year.  They look happy.

This is more or less the same view in 2004.  After building the retaining wall, I planted the privet hedge on the downhill side.  It didn't take long before I transplanted them to the uphill side.  What was I thinking?

From my bedroom window, I watched 20 Sparrows over several years take their first flight from their nests in the 'bird condo' as I call it.  It was fascinating to watch how the parents coaxed the little ones into the world.
