Bug, Wildflowers and Miscellaneous photos
This bug was scuttling about dazedly on our driveway. It looked like it had just emerged out of the ground with bits of dirt still clinging to its carapace. Potato beetle?
Here are some pictures of some wildflowers. I sowed the seeds earlier this spring and they are just starting to bloom. My favorite is the one that looks like snapdragons in whorls. Some kind of small mallow was also included in the mix. The sunflowers (black oil) are volunteers from our birdfeeders.
The 'Jane' Magnolia decided to bloom again. This second flush of flowers are even greater in number (approx. 45 flowers) than when it first bloomed in the spring. It will be interesting to see if it will bloom yet again in fall.
