Mosaic Monday: Garden Today

Today, I’m collaging garden photos taken on this lovely (64F) day in mid-October. True, we’ll be in the 30s the rest of the week at night and in the 50s during the days, but this holiday Monday was a reminder of warmth, well-being, and reasons to linger before flying south.


Herewith, starting from top left and moving clockwise: an Asian ladybug; a vegetable garden completely weeded and ready for garlic planting any time; oleander aphids on the Asclepias incarnata (swamp milkweed); filtered light under the Norway maple; Clethra ‘Ruby Spice’ (summer sweet) seedhead; a few purple phlox still blooming; shelling beans drying and podded; ‘Bluebird’ Aster laeavis with a painted lady butterfly (Vanessa cardui) and bumblebees; and a Milbert’s tortoiseshell butterfly (Aglais milberti), unusual in these parts.
