Last week, the city council didn’t have a quorum so they reset it for this week. Hopefully they will have enough council members to hold the meeting. Many of the items on the agenda were to pay bills and the contractors. I’m sure the contractors have an interest in a successful meeting. I think the auditors were to give a verbal report, as well.
I have a weird penchant to allow weeds to grow. Once I saw a cardinal eating pokeberries, so now I have several pokeberry plants that come back every year. I let milkweeds grow, too. I’m waiting for the monarchs to come and find them. That’s the only food source for the caterpillars, and I want to help them as much as I can. Some of the sparrows like the foxtail grass seeds, so I let them grow, too. Unfortunately, my yard looks very unkempt, and one of these days, I’ll get out there and trim it up some.
