In my garden, yep! He’s having a good old time in my very aggressive grape vines. In flight, I thought it was a super wasp and reached for my insect spray. Then there was the perch. That thing was about an inch long! And kinda cute!
For #Wordless Wednesday, kinda 😊
They come in red also…
For Cee’s Flower Of The Day Challenge. Cockscomb (Celosia cristata), such texture to these. I saw them at the plant store.
A peony from my garden. For Cee’s Photography Challenge Flower of The Day #FOTD. For other entries go here.
On my walk yesterday I saw this crafty plant pot, kinda shashy. Made out of some kind of netting. An idea I am definitely borrowing!
I took this one in the garden in the fall. It was the only splash of color still left in the garden.
I couldn’t believe this lantern was still on the stalk. It survived the winter, just hanging on. It looks downright ornamental!

This is a side walk garden a couple doors down from me. They also have a butterfly bush in there. Gorgeous!
Someone asked me what was a side walk garden. Thought I’d put it here.
A side walk garden is a small patch of earth left by the city as they build sidewalks. Some have the huge utility pole, some have a tree and some are bare. The home owner who plants the flowers in this little patch cares for it. Some go all out and put little fences around them (under a foot high), made of wood or wrought iron.
Here’s a long view of the whole idea of sidewalk gardens.
