Things I Saw


A nodding sunflower . . .


A shy moonflower . . .


The passion flower still amaze me . . .


A red wasp exploring . . .


A dead bumblebee just hanging there . . . overcome by passion?


I've been leaving the greenhouse door open in hopes that insects will come in an pollinate those cucumber vines I planted back in June.


A swallowtail had fluttered in.
I caught it and put it out . . . 


And, oh joy! there are little cucumbers forming on the vine!


And last of all, this tiny (dead) moth that came in on the ferns I cut for the living room -- it makes me think of a hair bow on a pretty girl.

The accompanying comments are lovely and thought provoking. "A shy moonflower and overcome by passion" are favorites. 💝💖

My favorite is the butterfly/moth corpse that graces your fern arrangement!
