From commentor La Passionara:
[At top] is a nice little bug hotel that I saw several years ago in the Missouri Botanical Garden. I have been meaning to start collecting the seed pods, etc, to make one.
And then I saw the Bee Hotel in the Jardin Des Plantes, in Paris.
This is quite an edifice, which I knew to be outside my skill set, but I was thinking maybe one of the handier jackals might be interested in making one, or a smaller version of one.
This was supposed to be a collection of sunflowers, and I suppose they are, but just not the kind I had envisioned. I do like the color, so I am not complaining.
Next, I noticed this had popped up in a bed behind my house. I have never seen this happen before, in the five years I have lived here.
So I waited a few days, and it now looks like I have a spider lily. That’s a surprise, but I am thinking I should have more of these, as I really like them.
Hope everyone and their gardens are surviving the summer!
What’s going on in your garden(s) this week?
