Insects (not true bugs!) πŸπŸ¦‹

​I’ve not had my phone with me while pruning in my garden and seen true bugs β€” though I have plenty of images of the butterflies and bees buzzing in my garden πŸ™‚ True Bugs are in the Hemiptera Order and includes cicada, stink bugs, aphids, {et al}.

Insects, not true bugs, like bees, Hymenoptera Order, and butterflies, Lepidoptera Order, abound in my pollinator garden.

Enjoy a few insects!

    1. Thank you! I created the garden to be s pollinator garden — lots of native plants to attract a variety of insects and hummingbirds 😊 When the flowers go to seed, I also get a lot of song birds as well. 🌿

      1. This may sound strange but this year Organ Pipe Mud Dauber Wasps in the corner of our swing but the nests were taken over by more dangerous bees. I don’t like wasps or hornets.

      2. Awwww…..I’m not allergic to bee stings, but I’m always wary as my grandmother was! I’ve only gotten stung once, but it was after I had a traumatic eye injury — adding insult to injury. I’m planning on getting allergy testing this fall πŸ™‚

      3. Indeed!! Thank goodness with age comes the wisdom that we’ll always be learning; there’s always more to know! It’s wonderfully empowering and exciting to have a lifetime of learning ahead 😊
