They wrap around everything and are an impossible struggle to eradicate. I think I need new glasses. Never could find the insect. Animalcouriers June 9, 2012 at 7:12 am - ReplyErm, they are one and the same thing! Courier J must feel that in an neglected urban setting they might have a beauty which is beyond a gardener’s ability to perceive 😉 The insect is perhaps a dragonfly (photo above the ‘bindweed’) but a magnifying glass is certainly needed 😀 dou dou June 9, 2012 at 12:43 am - ReplyI’ve heard that Turkey is beautiful 🙂 Animalcouriers June 9, 2012 at 7:13 am - ReplyOh, it certainly is but sadly we only get to scratch the surface 🙂 Lisa at fLVE June 9, 2012 at 9:00 am - ReplyStick insect? I can’t see it. I am totally guessing. And oh, i am rooting for the tadpoles too. Jamie Dedes December 30, 2012 at 4:36 am - ReplyLovely photos. Unfortunate that trash is as ubiquitous as flowers these day. Animalcouriers December 30, 2012 at 10:02 am - ReplyIt’s a great shame but at least the wild flowers seem to be able to cope with areas of trash desolation and manage to take the edge off it.We'd love to hear from you Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
