So it’s been raining in Austin…a lot. I’m not complaining, I just wish it would space itself out a little, instead of these deluges that drown my drought-tolerant plants.
Well someone enjoys these growing conditions. 🍄
And I think this is Bird Wing Passionflower vine.
The Gulf Fritillary caterpillars are all over it, and range in size from tiny…
Seriously, this guy has got to start creating a cocoon soon.
No idea the plant or insect species, but I like how his spots echo those on the plant.
And this might be a Ceraunus Blue?? Not sure though.
Yellow Bells Esperanza blooming.
With some False Day Flower.
I thought this eaten up Sevenleaf Creeper looked neat. I didn’t plant this so, I’m not upset by the damage.
Making our way towards the pond, the Dwarf Papyrus is blooming prettily.
Budge rearranging some rocks for me.
And this is a new development. I have no idea what this crusty stuff stuck to the rock is. You can easily pop those little bubbles. Anyone know?
A passalong Monarda given to me by Diana at Sharing Nature’s Garden is blooming, even though I still don’t have it in the ground…yet!
And lastly, a chewed up Indian Blanket. Hope it’s tasty grasshopper.
