The lazy days of summer are settling in, and the DragonFly garden is turning into a peaceful kingdom. The gardening duties are down to a couple hours of maintenance in the early morning, while the rest of the day is spent taking pictures and admiring the scenery.
The bees are gorging on the plentiful nectar from the Blue Porterweed flowers.
The butterflies are back.
The Monarch butterflies are laying eggs on the Milkweed.
New residents arrive every day, as the Milkweed disappears.
A family of Blue Jays; patrol the air, keeping predators away.
Lizards keep order on the ground.
The army of mercenary lady bugs; have moved on to battle enemies in other gardens.
The snail rebellion was crushed and driven underground, when the king put his foot down. (Pictures are too graphic to be shown on this blog)
All in all, life is good in the Kingdom (unless you are a snail)
Happy Father’s Day
