A few interesting insects and crawlers we found in the yard this summer. The baby King snake and the unidentified green-eyed bee (?) thing were discovered by the doggies. The Sphinx moth was flitting around the yard …
This birdie was hanging out, high above us on a Queen Palm seed pod, enjoying the beautiful, balmy morning. Is this a house finch?

Sometimes I feel everyday in the backyard has a new adventure / challenge waiting to unfold. This week I came across this intricate formation on my vinca vines. I immediately presumed it was the eggs of one of the many spiders hanging around. After a bit of research I’m fairly certain and happily so, that they are Green Lacewing eggs which are a wonderful little predator to have in your yard to combat the the bugs you don’t want.
… is the state of my plan to trim back the arabian jasmine vines.
Fortunately I spotted this paper wasp working on his home before I started pruning.
What to do…
A different point of view… a hibiscus from the back… as beautiful as from the front.

My Black-Eyed Susan vine, is back this year after I chopped it down by mistake last year. So happy. You may ask how one does that… well this little vine winds its way through the lavender Star Flower bush, which needs to be pruned regularly. One of my pruning exercises managed to nip the main stem of the Black Eyed Susan vine.
My new Pearl Pink bougainvillea doing very well.
