The Leopard lilies are still blooming. They attract many bees, wasps, ants, and butterflies. I caught this one right after a heavy afternoon shower.
This solanum plant grows in my backyard next to the bamboo. I had posted the picture of the blooms some time back and some of you had wanted to know how big the plant was. As you can see from this photo, it is taking quite a bit of space. Wild plants, no matter how attractive the flowers may be, are definitely meant for the small garden. At times, realization comes a little too late:)
Living it up on one of my okra plants is this little pest! Bed and breakfast, nay, all meals taken care of! If the bed is reduced to shreds, simply crawl over to the next green inviting leaf leaving a slimy trail behind!
Although I’m calling this post “Garden Update” these pictures were taken back home in the last week of July. Every year my guava trees (I have three of them now) bear an abundant havest. Enough to share with my neighbours and relatives, the birds and the butterflies. The brown butterflies, mostly Bush Browns are often seen feeding on fallen guavas. The fruit is very sweet.
