painted lady butterfly on echinacea
Takes caterpillars to have butterflies, and they have very specific dietary requirements.... In this day & age of endless turf, we all should grow
It's no longer possible to depend on the vacant lot down the street to supply us with butterflies for our flower garden.
little gray lizard
AKA Eastern Fence Lizard
AKA Six-lined Racerunner
These lizards are helpful in the garden, They will occassionally dash out in front of me to grab bugs... I've even had them hang out next to the campfire eating termites while I made coffee & pancakes!
Here's a couple taken at dusk from the moon garden.
