I always find ladybugs in my house
What is this green one here? I am curious about the other orange stuff too, but I put that on a separate post already.
This orange lichen was growing on a box elder.
there were no spots on this one
this was sitting on a sweet fennel right beside a ladybug.
Whenever I see fennel growing I always inspect to check out the lady bugs
I think this is Mule Fat but it might just be some sort of cudweed. The leaves remind me of a willow for sure. A beautiful green fly really enjoys the flower buds
Taking one of our last walnuts. With the increased crow numbers in the last few years, we get no nuts at all. to be fair, we've many squirrels too; but we used to get a peck of windfall walnuts.
Very heavy infestation of this green chard--confluent in places-- but absent on adjacent rainbow chard.
I picked some grapes this morning and two ladybug beetles crawled out of the bag.

I believe the is shows the plant pathology of the Fuchsia Gall Mite, Aculops fuchsiae acc'd to an online plant pest site…
It's bedeviled one of our nice plants for the last few years. Once it gets cold the galls disappear, only to gradually reappear and multiply once the plant is flowering in the spring. By August virtually every budding branch turns into one of these rather unattractive galls. I'm told that hummingbirds spread the pest; certainly we get quite a few of these attending the blooms.
these plants are enjoying the moisture from the bank of a little stream. They have white flowers.
