Once upon a time probably five years ago, some made the failed attempt to start an endemic patriotic horticultural movement among the populace.

Your humble servant argued that endemic birds, insects and you name it would not go to inquire to the vegetation that offer food, shade and shelter if they are endemic or exotic.

Here is the evidence. One of four or five hummingbirds that visit the north and south garden daily libating from a Calliandra Haemathocephalla,  originally from Australia.

The pigeon by the window, also endemic, is munching on seeds from Phoenix, Arizona.  Finches have arrived lately to hang out and feed in me garden. They were pets at one time, like the green iguana recently featured here.  Now these  penguin looking, cute birds are part of the environment. In brief, what is important is real. Inane theories, movements, become water and salt.

The quality of the pictures? Well they will not get me a Pulitzer, but illustrate the point. 

That is that.
