Goings On In The Garden

The Aster Potschke is blooming full.

Someone or something smashed my Salvia elegans. When I stuck my hand in there to pull it up a cat jumped out and I got stung by a honeybee (all over the aster which had gone down with it). I had to tie up the sage and aster, wait for the sting to settle down.

All the activity startled this mantis out of protective hiding.

If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
