And I have no idea who this is–

Not a Spider Mite

Brug in Pot

After the last flowers bloom, I plan to remove all of the leaves and then treat the Brug with systemic.

What I Found While Watering My Gardens

Friday, September 14th, 2018

A wee lizard was trapped in a five gallon pot of sunflowers. Its feet were slipping and sliding on the plastic surface preventing him from escaping the pot.

I placed a wood shim near the lizard. The texture of the wood helped it climb out of the pot. The shim is 1.75″ wide.

Concerned that the lizard might need some water, I placed a rock in an applesauce cup with a little water.

After I get past…it is not a snake, I welcome lizards to live in my gardens.

Moth and Roadrunner Henderson, NV

Sphynx Moth

Sphynx Moth in Henderson, NV garden last night.

I was using the flashlight on my phone to locate the moth and then used the flash. The moth was bopping around from plant to plant. At one point it flew into my ankle.

Road Runner

Roadrunner above Henderson, NV garden this morning.

The roadrunner was rather far away and in the shade. I did a quick (HDR Scrape), not great edit in Snapseed. Need to dink around with the HDR Scrape to find best way to use it.

Roadrunner

There are two young Jack Rabbits in the garden that I have been unable to photograph. Too much fun to watch them, forget to take a photo.
