  1. Wonderful!

    "A garden" makes me curious who the garden belongs to :)

    1. Thanks. Lol...Well, it's an overgrown/poorly tended garden at a nature center. A lot of Audubon centers and nature centers around here have pollinator/native plant gardens near their entrances. I hike the woods nearby, but stop at the gardens first. This year, because of Covid, the gardens are very poorly tended and nature has taken over, which is nice because it means more critters and insect pests are thriving among the weeds. It is VERY fun to sit and look for insect treasures. Posted 2 years ago
