Let's see...loads of bees around, they are loving my borage "forest"-will have to do something about it very soon, I have got borage seedlings coming up everywhere.
An assortment of Birds, somehow my yard seem to be the nursery for birdie parents dropping off fledglings for the day, I think they feel safe because the dogs keeps the yard clear of cats and they will not chase the birds.
I was excited to see a pair of red shouldered hawks nesting in an old pine tree near my co,,unity garden this summer. They produced one offspring and seemed quite happy there till mid Oct. There are some Pics in my spark album. Anita
I had snowflakes flitting around my garden this week.
I didn't know the tomato hornworm was the caterpillar for the hummingbird moth. I saw my first one this past year and didn't know what it was. No sign of hornworms though - maybe the birds feasted on them. Cardinals especially seem to enjoy them.
I love the birds & butterflies my garden attracts, with the exception of the hummingbird moth. Its caterpiller is the tomato hornworm. I have a number of plants that are larval plants for butterflies, so they lay eggs andI get even more butterflies, I love the black and pipevine swallowtails and have taken pix of their caterpillars on my plants.
