Nature Notes - It's a Jungle Out there
The combination of a wet summer with enough sun for growth has resulted in a jungle in my garden.
I like the lush growth and so do the butterflies, bees, birds, rabbits, and many other inhabitants of my garden. If it wasn't for the heat and mosquitoes, I would have no complaints.
I am fortunate to have shade trees which give me some cooler spots when I want to sit outside. Even as some flowers are getting a little faded, I can see the promise of new ones to come next spring.
The center of the black eyed susan above will have hundreds of seeds.
