Posted on 2022-05-262022-05-2605/26/2022 A winecup from two summers ago came back. This true bug was relatively long and thin, and is standing on greeneyes. It flew away before I got a better picture. Bee fly at woodland edge! I’m hoping this could be inland sea oats that I seeded two years ago. There’s a passionvine label here but this could also be butterfly pea?? We’ll find out!! Across the fence from mystery seedling is a known passionvine. Showy milkweed has survived its planting. I think these are the Mexican sage from Judy. A small bee on coreopsis. Mystery grass. I will note here when I hear back from the grass expert! (Then I can check here next year when I forget haha.) Close up. A small native legume whose name I’ve forgotten. There are quite a few growing in the rainbow beds and in the backyard at the edge of the patio. A lightning bug on a rain barrel. A leaf miner in the native coral honeysuckle! I think this dark spot is the larva, visible on underside of leaf. So tiny! Overall the coral honeysuckle is beginning to get going. This one was from Judy! Thanks Judy! A wild grape that we dug from the front to make room for strawberries. Joke’s on us because there was root left up front and it’s now taking over the rain barrel stand too. Another black nightshade. I think their tiny flowers are so pretty. Elderberry just starting. I think a mealy bug? On ironweed stem. Liatris mucronata from home from last summer. Dicanthelium grass that came along with Liatris. A tiny insect on ironweed. Purple coneflower working its way towards blooming. A mystery leaf. The mystery leaf above came along with the transplanted wedge leaf Euphorbia.
