ladybug ladybug

There were a lot of ladybugs around this summer, I'm glad - they are so helpful in the garden. Here on a rose.

I've been gathering photos of Service members in our family- many have served. Thank you!

Just like columbine flowers with their long spurs and many stamen, this one yellow.

Back to flowers

Since the first killing frost has hit, the flowers are memories of summer past. This is a dahlia, first time I've had them bloom in my garden. I liked the flower and now need to protect the roots from freezing to see if I can get it to bloom again next year.

spider sat down beside her

It's October - time to be spooky. When I took in my house plants for the fall this spider came along with the staghorn fern. When I discovered her I gently but quickly removed her and her web to the outside, where I took some pictures. Whew! She is well camouflaged and quite big about a quarter in size.
