Snapped a shot of this Hummingbird Moth in my yard in Indiana, hovering around the butterfly bushes. One of my favorite things about this photo is how the green background has almost melted away.
Tiny Garden, Big Yield - just a small piece of the yard turned into a garden for cooler months. During the summer, this is where the above-ground pool goes. Fresh snap peas and chili peppers, and some squash.
How does my garden grow …?

Chinese gardens are built not planted to be a solitary place or to be a place for “social contemplation of nature.” Chinese gardens are culturally important, serving as a semi-public extension of the house, meant for retreat, for festivity, for study of poetry, or even for romance.

I don’t have much of a garden. It’s would be a full time job in the desert, and having a full time job already, I just can’t do it. But I do have a couple color spots that give me great pleasure to sit under a tree and watch the birds and butterflies. They make use of the bird bath and a hummingbird feeder to come visit and I watch the foot traffic on my street. It’s a busy pedestrian thoroughfare.
The color of this blossom was so lovely, I had to memorialize it.
