Shoot, I'll take ANY end of a pollinator at this point. I can count the bees I've seen on one hand. Sad

I found a False Colorado Potato beetle nibbling on my healthiest eggplant. These appear now and then, but aren't a pest to the degree (true) Colorado Potato beetles can be. It gave me a truly innocent look, so after photographing it, it got a free ride across the yard to some wild nightshade weed. I said "Here, eat this instead." but since beetles don't understand language, it may or may not stay put/out of the garden. July Avatar: Anything Goes! Img_9112

Okay, here's mine. The Mama plant came from the grocery store and started as a pineapple top about 4 years ago.

We've been very lucky so far -- lots of bees. Here they are, taking over a hummingbird feeder.
July Avatar: Anything Goes! Bees10

What worries me is the butterflies. 2 years ago, we had hundreds of California Hairstreaks (little blue guys). Last year we only had about 6. This year, none. Sad We haven't seen a single Monarch or Gulf Fritillary, either. I'm hoping the rains last spring rejuvenated their natural habitat so they didn't have to come here anymore. Any other explanation is unthinkable. Shocked

Good. We have seen a few Pipevine Swallowtails, a Common Buckeye, an occasional Tiger Swallowtail, but that's all. No congregations. Everyone just passing through. Sad

I am getting a jump on the July Avatar with this recent sunset from our backyard. Or maybe I should use the rainbow from the same night but at the front of the house.

Beautiful! I know what I want for mine, too. There's a gorgeous big orange dragonfly that hangs around the pool. If I can get him to pose for me, I'll make him a celebrity!  rock on

July Avatar: Anything Goes! Empty Fireworks

Post  countrynaturals 7/5/2018, 10:24 am

Mine is a still shot from the video I took last night from the front deck of our new house. Hubby has never liked fireworks and I've always loved it, but most years I didn't get to see it. Now I should never have to miss it again.  cheers The amazing part is that the view is so perfect from that spot. On our property next door, there was no clear visibility and on the other 2 side decks of the new place there were trees from our propery blocking the view. This is really exciting stuff for me. (Hubby thinks I'm nutz!  Rolling Eyes )
