An old friend visits in vast numbers recently as winter hits. The golden leafs?

Pretty Things

Words can't express.

Blue Flowers

A lot of foliage is blooming, and others aren't as much. Snails and other insects continue to plague certain plants, but leave others alone to flourish. I spray one plant constantly because of these tiny aphid-like insects that group on its leaves.

So that's why it's called "fall".

"Bad" Animals

Ants that were right next to my feet under my desk, apparently making a nursery out of a crevase in the wall. I don't know why, but it smelled odd in the general vicinity, almost like they used sent to pick where to go.

Ants from the same colony I believe. These were outside of course, and I think they eat at the roots of the plants underneath the dirt

This spider is in the alley way next to the trash cans outside the wall to my closet. This is one is bigger than the orange one that lived in my tree if you can believe that! He looks like an over grown common spider.

Lily Pad Things

I forgot what these are called. I like these plants, they do well where the poppy's used to be! They are being eaten by these little black bugs that cluster up and devour the leafs one by one!

A Spider

This spider has lived here with me since I moved, and I don't know how long before that. I saw him outside during the day for once (instead of night), so I prodded him with a stick so that I could find out where he lived. It turns out it lives under a leave in the tree above my garden. It's a bit larger than a quarter minus the leg span! Oh, and the camera lens is an inch away from touching it...

I got some more "ground cover" plants, as well as snap dragons, to fill in the empty spots that all the orange pansies left. I also found a big grass hopper in the yellow bush!

They were the cause to ruin of my garden for the most part. They are good at hiding, but not all of them can! I've recovered and cleaned my garden a little, these are some previous wild life photos.

Things aren't looking too bright in my garden. It seems like the life that was flourishing was there just for a visit!

Fire and Weeds

The garden is on fire! I got a plant that looks like flames when it blooms, and I hope it will mesh nicely with the rest of the garden. I put it on the right of my statue, on the right side of the garden. Also, here are what the roots of these clovers look like when they get big pesky weeds.

These pretty white flowers are scattering all over the fence above my garden, and seeing them called attention to this little flying insect that resembles a bee. I wonder what this insect is exactly, as I recall seeing them flying around in place like a hummingbird would.

Tons of wild growth in the garden, and practically the whole space is filled in. As you see the creatures that inhabit the garden, so do various different and unique plants. We have what covers the fence, the poppy corner, and the main garden.

More Insects!

Mr. and Miss Grasshopper hang out on the big yellow flowered bush in my garden all day every day as it seems. Mr. Grasshopper posed for me and does not mind when I stick the camera up in his face. The pictures aren't focused exactly how I want them, but it's a bit hard to do that. Also, here is the picture of the no good inch worm eating my columbine plant.


A batch of mushrooms have been mushrooming themselves behind the safety of some of the more colorful an expected plants! I had no idea of this, and I don't know how many more there are! I dug them up in fear that they would spread and/or take over/poison what I already have. I really think they are cool looking though, and would replant them somewhere else if I knew they were safe. In other alerts, I caught an inch worm red handed as he was feeding on my columbine flowers.

A lot of little grasshoppers are around, and very hard to see. A leaf fell down and three of them gathered on it so it was lucky for me to see! There's been a lot of insects in the garden which is now full. I've seen many spiders, many bees, grasshoppers (small and big), and other weird insects. Here are the grasshoppers and another bug I found on the poppies, with other pretty flowers.

Rose Parade

Tons of roses bloomed. They are pink and bountiful. These rose petals fall off easily, but make for a nice petal array that replicates that of cherry blossoms.

Poppy Day

Recently the poppies went crazy and wild.
