I have a few chives that are putting out a second bloom. My gardens are FULL of bees now due to the Sedumn Autumn Joy.
That is something I may not have warned you all about. If bees, hornets, wasps, etc. bother you, don't plant the AJ! They all love it and it is not uncommon to have 4 or 5 of the various stinging insects swarming around each plant. They have never stung me, but I still get a little nervous when I have to get this close (within 3 or 4 inches) to get a close up pic.
I don't know what this caterpillar is.
I really don't know much about bugs, insects, etc. I just like photographing them.
I am so glad you stopped by to visit my garden. I garden in lower northern Michigan (zone 5) in far less than ideal conditions. I have too many pine trees, too much shade, too many rocks, herds of hosta-munching deer and rabbits who think my lilly buds are gourmet appetizers. I am by no means an expert in horticulture or garden design--just an amateur with a shovel and a passion. My garden changes daily during the summer and I will be updating frequently.
During the winter months, I blog about my favorite cold-weather hobby--quilting and just my everyday musings.
I hope you enjoy your visit, and that you will come back soon.
