On Halloween we found this cute little lady bug in our garden.
Ladybug on the peas and dill
This spent dill and volunteer pea have created a real life ladybug haven in our garden.
Sunflower ‘Japanese Silver-Leaf’
This sunflower has been covered in aphids for quite some time. There’s a constant stream of ants going up and down farming them. It doesn’t seem to bother the plant too much, and is probably one of the reasons we have our ladybug hang out. It’s an awesome sunflower.
We couldn’t miss out on the SF Botanical Garden when we were back in town for a visit. I think the Puya alpestris pictured above is blooming right now, so you should go check it out. Check out our blog about the Puya insanity at SFBG last year.
Zoe & the Kniphofias
Zoe loves traveling around in the Ergo. It’s pretty amazing to be able to nurse and walk around looking at plants without anything hanging out.
