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.
