Here are some photos from my garden. There are some blooming flowers, which I hope to attract birds and bugs, as well as save seeds. The edible plants should give me some food in the next month or two.
This bush is a Bluebeard Longwood Blue, there are at least five of these in my neighborhood. On sunny days this summer, I have seen numerous Painted Lady Butterflies and Honeybees on them. Here are a few photos from one morning.
