This shot was take on 26 Dec 2009 from my living room window. Now that winter has rolled in you can only see the tops of some of the native plants that were growing in the bioswale at the back of our property, in northeast Ankeny. During the summer months the swale is a chorus of frogs, toads, and crickets. To our surprise though, there never was a large population of mosquitoes, we will have to see next year.
