Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

Aside: Is there a more thankless job than moderating a presidential debate? The only guarantee if you do a great job is that both sides will be peeved at best and furious at worst with the idea that you actually actively moderated the discussion. The nerve!
At any rate "my" presidential election is all over and it feels great so far. Whether or not other voters agreed with my stance remains to be seen naturally, but I am relieved to have my participation on the books. At the very least it will add authority to my hounding of family members to cast their ballots, which I so will be doing. That's the price of keeping my company, frankly. Folks I hang with don't have to agree with me but they darn well better participate.
