Everything and more about gardening in Shady's SE Iowa (USA) location.
Great creaturese you captured. I'd love to have them in my garden.
You are lucky to have such lovely visitors to your garden, so far I have had slugs & mosquitoes. :/
Hiya,I echo Rebecca :-)That hummingbird was quick on the draw.
Gardener & Rebecca, I also have chipmunks, squirrels, mosquitoes, gnats, wood ticks . . . ;-) But these are amongst the more favorable critters!Hi Joco, I've had three hummers sitting on this feeder at the same time. (Not a common occurrence!)
They are so quick they make me dizzy!
How exciting to see so both a hummingbird and caterpillars in your garden. I love the coloring of the 'big brother' caterpillar especially :-)
Great shots through your kitchen window....love hummers.I see different kinds of butterflies in the yard but can't seem to find the caterpillers.:(
troutbirder - dizzy with excitement? :-)Noelle, Isn't it great?Patsi, Thanks! I don't always know where to look for the caterpillars, but with Monarchs - it's easy. Milkweed plants.
You get an up close and personal view of the hummers. Aren't the amazing to watch? You'll have to keep us posted on the monarch progress.
Hi Chad and Brandy, I've been looking into applying to be a Monarch Waystation. I've let several common milkweed plants grow in the gardens this year. I need (want) two more varieties.I'll try to keep up with those caterpillars! :-)
Fun post, Shady ... you have a very inviting/yummy yard!
Hi Joey! Not as yummy as your kitchen! :-)
I rarely see a caterpillar more than 2 or 3 days. Either they get eaten, or become a chrysalis. What fun it must be to watch the hummingbirds!
