They mowed most of the weeds along our property easement/greenbelt last week.  I was happy to see the neighborhood landscape crew out yesterday mowing and trimming.  And then this morning, this guy was spraying.  I'm hoping they will add our greenbelt area to their lawn care schedule.

Chaste Tree (Vitex agnus-castus)

Beautiful garden or patio tree shows terminal clusters of fragrant lilac blooms, backed by aromatic gray-green compound foliage. Broad and spreading, effective multi-trunk display. Train for use in a shrub border, or use as a small tree to accent the landscape. Deciduous.

I recently got a game camera and I've been positioning it around the yard to see what critters may wander into view.

I was excited to see an oriole at the hummingbird feeder this week, so I decided to buy an oriole feeder, and hope for regular visits throughout the season.
