It’s a rambling blog today. I have little ability to focus, driving is hazardous, and my husband has been super helpful lately since I told him I am trying desperately not to descend into the morass, which he has helpfully renamed the molasses. One foot in front of the other and soldier on…
Enough of the whining, you’ve read it before, no sense in dragging it on.
Because my concentration levels are so low, this is going to be a photography map of what’s going on in my life…come for a walk with me…
In the studio you will see that the joey is almost finished and I couldn’t resist placing him in the pouch temporarily just to see whether they look good together…the answer is yes!!!
I won’t tell you why, but earlier today I could be seen taking a picture of a bulb of garlic. You will just have to be patient to find out why.
In the garden you will see a late pollinator called a digger wasp or blue winged wasp on the native goldenrod. I was thrilled to see it for more than one reason, not only is it cool looking but the mothers feed on Japanese Beetle grubs…I hope they eat lots of them during the winter. They made a mess of my garden this year.
Otherwhere’s in the garden, a volunteer yellow cherry tomato is hiding under the echinacea…I just picked some and have yet to eat one but will report in a future post, if I remember.
And finally, here is proof that at least one monarch visited my garden this year. I had a whole bunch of tomatoes in my hands so I didn’t dig around for the fourth wing. One can only hope that the eventual death of this butterfly happened after the eggs were laid for the next round.
