Camera critters/Fall Flowers
I found some fun "critters" in the garden recently. Take a look:
There have been lots of hummingbird moths in the garden.
Look who came to feast on the parsley: yet another black swallowtail caterpillar.
I really like my honeysuckle bush. Not only does it bloom almost continuously all summer long, it's also a bird magnet. These birds are probably eating the berries. Hummingbirds love the flowers.

Also seen in the gardens: the mums are beginning to bloom.
The Callicarpa (Purple Beautyberry) is full of stunning lavender berries.
It's Toad Lily time! Rather exotic looking, don't you agree?
Speaking of camera critters, here's a sleepy little schnauzer! Love my little Josey!
