Last May my kindergartner brought home a paper cup filled with dirt and a few scraggly seedlings. Now we have flowers. Thank you Mrs. H., for all you gave us.
My parents gave him a bug box for his birthday. Look what he caught yesterday! Anyone know what this is called?
What's blooming or fruiting or buzzing in your garden this week? Leave us a link please.
ETA: I posted a question about identifying that bug on an insect forum and was told right away that it is a Giant Ichneumon Wasp, a parasitic type of wasp that lays eggs in larva deep within dead wood. The long tail is for boring into the wood and laying eggs. Here's a link to more information.
The garden roundup:
Alkelda's got sunflowers, including a really fabulous Chocolate Cherry blossom closeup.
Suzanne's got adorable photos of her bunny Bliss wandering the garden trails. And check out her super cool Wordle header!
Janet has photos of the gardens outside her library and several great poems about gardens of books.
Charlotte is rebuilding an area in her garden to make a pleasant sitting place. Take a look at her photos of the reconstruction. In my mind I am already lounging in her shade.
Thanks to everyone for participating this week.
