It's once again time for May Dreams Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day. Follow the link to see what's blooming this month all over the world.
Around here I have a few bedraggled sunflowers, some cosmos that's mostly gone to seed, and morning glories that have seen better days. We've gotten enough run-off from the hurricanes that it's been very Fall here these past few weeks, and I imagine it's beginning to get hard to be a bee or a butterfly.
I always wait until after the first frost to really get in and start hacking things down--just to help the critters out a bit--but I don't know how much it actually helps. I found this guy tonight, either dead or very close to it. I actually touched him and he didn't move. I think it's just a little too chilly for his kind.
