…and naughty bits.
I take perennial flowers for granted. I planted them so I expect them to be there for me, and they are, year after year while I’ve gallivanted around seeking cheap thrills with their wild cousins.
Ever faithful, my garden phlox and perennial sunflowers wait for me at the side of the house. Both are a bit aggressive but I like that in my flower bed.
Then there’s my geranium. I’ve forgotten her name but she still tempts me with her naughty bits.
Speaking of naughty bits, the ligularia has more than enough to arouse my interest. I have to say ligularia flowers are one of my perennial favorites.
An inch worm makes an unsuccessful move on another ligularia flower. Poor little worm, no matter how much he stretched and stiffened the neighboring naughty bits were out of reach.
Phloxy Autumn Joy. I told ya phlox is aggressive.
Sedum flower heads getting phloxed.
Ah, what can I say. I strayed on the wild side again. A dainty Aster on the fringes of respectability (where the lawn mower dares not go) caught my fancy. Asters can be so hard to pin down s I didn’t catch a last (species) name.
Disturb a bald faced hornet’s nest and you’ll feel the sting of their really nasty bits. They’re pretty much a black and white version of a yellow jacket wasp. Both are known for their bad attitude so it’s best not to stick your nose into their business end.
I guess that’s enough. I have other things to do now.
