Six on Saturday mid-September.
1 - It's that time of year when perennials get cut back. The coreopsis is already putting out next year's growth.
2 - A really pretty mushroom shot from below and taken as a selfie. I nearly had to stand on my head to get it!
3 - A male Long-horned bee in a sulfur cosmos. Only the males have the long antennae.
4 - I just noticed earlier this week that a big chunk of the New Dawn rose is dead. I'll have to gird myself with thick clothing and gloves and take a look.
5 - Honey bee in litchi tomato flowers. Litchi tomatoes DO taste like a mix of tomatoes and cherries. But, they have lots of very hard, large seeds, considering how small the fruits themselves are, the size of a small cherry tomato.
6 - The Monster, the mystery squash, is beautiful. It may be Tatume (Tat-oo-me), Mexican squash, a kind that can be harvested as summer squash or winter squash.
I harvested some as summer squash. Not for me! I never eat summer squash. I gave them away.
That's it for me. What six things do you have?
