Be forewarned-this is a photo heavy post
After finding three infestations of Lubber nymphs,yesterday I bought Nolo Bait and applied it.Now that,that is done and traps are set(Info on that can be found here.)it was time to sit back and watch the Lubbers cannibalize themselves.Who knew they were that way?
Can you hear my maniacal laughter?
Only a gardener could take such great delight in murdering a creature like that….
I cannot wait to come home and find Lubbers eating each other!
While I was waiting,and anticipating,the carnivorous action that is yet to be,I thought it would be good to catch the back garden in the late afternoon/early evening sun .Though the garden always seems to photograph much better in the early morning,I was interested to see what the camera could capture in the late afternoon sun.
After the County removed the four cypress trees,TheGreatWall is in full sun almost all day.It has been a learning experience seeing the changes in the garden.Plants have had to be moved to shadier locations.Containers have to be watered more often.
But,most of all,I wanted to see how the late afternoon sun reflected off the plants….
A Canna leaf….
What’s that in the lower left corner?
Peace Lily bloom….
Crape Honeysuckle looks almost psychedelic reflected in the late afternoon sun.
Blue eyed grass
Australian Tree Fern
Container on the path-to-no-where…
til the week end,
