Incredibly beautiful hydrangea on the corner of my house just will not stop being beautiful.
Alianthus moth on echinacea last week. Bet you never saw that before!
Goodbye black and blue salvia! See you (and the hummingbirds you attract) next spring!
See ya Wilson’s rhododendron, and your majestic monarch!
Bye you crazy echinacea- and the thousands of beautiful insects you attract as well as the yellow finches who eat your thistle-like seeds in fall!
Later alligator who popped up unannounced in my blueberry field!
Farewell till next summer, my faithful stunningly awesome dwarf Japanese hydrangea!
Bye till spring, armeria maritima! Your diminutive stature won’t be missed with your evergreen foliage turning marooning in winter.
HELLO, Native American flowering dogwood berries! THANK YOU for feeding migrating bids as well as overwintering ones. HUMANS are eradicating all birds by the billions, but trees like you are trying to help them. Thanks, and keep up that important work.
To my blueberry plants- I LOVE YOU. Have a nice hibernation.
Asclepias tuberosa, THANK YOU for helping out these endangered swallowtail butterflies. Humans are eradicating them, but you are trying to save them. Hope that it’s YOU who wins that battle.
See you next summer, violent beautiful thunderstorms!
Praying mantis and bumblebees (unsung heroes of the pollination world), looking forward to next year- watching you do your thing on my flowers.
Strange looking beauty is found all over, not hard to see mother nature’s bountiful magesty all over the place.
Honeysuckle by my kitchen door- can’t wait to smell your luscious fragrance next spring, and see your delicate blossoms.
