Ulistac Natural Preserve
Last weeks' paintsite was at the Ulistac Natural Preserve. We were hoping for lots of wild flowers, but apart from a few dancing poppies everything had been mown down. However, the butterfly and hummingbird garden was in flower. There were lots of bees and birds about, and also plenty of Western Fence Lizards rustling in the undergrowth. One came out, bobbed his body up a down a few times, and sat at my feet for a short while.
