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. Nature Notes Home
That white flower stands out among the greens.:D
i love that white flower perching out of the green background!
I think, I already mentioned that I love your garden, no?
I do envy you a tiny bit for your shady trees too, grin :)
Can I join you sitting in the shade, listening to the bees?
But what a glorious jungle it is!
Now that is what I call a garden! I bet it is a real wildlife haven, as you say. Shade trees and lush undergrowth - sounds like a haven for me, let alone the wildlife! We could do with a little of your heat here in the UK, but not any of those mosquitos thank you - they like the taste of me a little too much...
Really beautiful photos!
Another fabulous series of beautiful pictures!
Bird is right, you do have a perfect wildlife haven Carver. It is very green here too and many,many mosquitoes with all the rain. There will be the concerns about west nile that is carried by a particular kind of mosquito, and one that doesn't need water to reproduce. Thank you for being a loyal member of Nature Notes..

I'm with you, Carver! Unfortunately, here, the humidity is so high, even the shade doesn't help. :-( You capture the lushness beautifully!
It's amazing to see everything so lush this time of year. Usually, everything is looking pretty tired by now. Great closeup of the Brown Eyed Susan!
