I was looking at my garden from my den window the other day.
Things are filling in nicely.
I think this is a Silver Spotted Skipper.
I am no expert on butterflies and rarely see them.
There was a hummingbird flitting around
that disappeared by the time I got my camera.
The Japanese Beetles have been chewing on my
Coral Bark Maple.
I saw this branch moving and thought I could capture it.
Lo and behold, it was a bee...BUT
To the right of the bee is a beetle
and I think there is another to his right.
Pictures can be amazing. All I had seen was movement.
Most of this was planted this year.
It will be fun to watch it mature.
I hope everything survives the winter.
I replaced one of the Cone flowers that Mr Groundhog ate.
They are on sale this time of year.
These are across my back yard.
Lovely Crepe Myrtle Bush
a Hydrangea that got cut back and may not bloom again.
I'm happy to say that the pruning around here is now supervised.
