whereas this one I think is a Meadow Brown as it only has 1 spot.........We always get plenty of these.................Green veined???? White.........
But I'm not quite sure what this one is?
Meeyauw gave me a link to a great site BudGuide.net but it deals with US and Canadian insects and I can't find this one there or on any of the British sites I visit. It's wings are almost translucent even when closed. I remember my pre-camera days when a butterfly was just a butterfly....it can be quite hard for a novice to tell the difference................
Despite so many bugs in the garden they hardly ever "bug" me......I guess I'm not as tasty as the flowers!!!!!
I think this is a Coreus Marginatus...boy that's a mouthful ....its common name is Squash Bug which derives from it being a pest on squash crops in North America.
It's been a long wait this year but FINALLY my Eucomis (Pineapple flower) is coming into bud. Libby at Woodlands World has had hers in flower for a while; I'm hoping at some point my Brugmansia will show some signs of budding as Libby's flowers on hers are beautiful......I can almost smell their fragrance through my PC screen.
As our garden is quite shady and small and I'm such a plantaholic I'm inclined to place plants according to the amount of sun they need rather than concentrating on colour combinations. Sometimes though an area"comes together" colourwise just by accident. This small area is "accidentally" working so well with the colour of the Canna leaves, Lucifer crocosmia flowers and Bishop of Llandaff Dahlia.
and the Japanese Blood Grass plays its part too.
Once again it's a warm, sunny day here in my part of the world. So what am I doing blogging you may ask.......ahhhh well I'm blogging in the garden! And I don't get so stressed when my tempremental pc shuts down...I just go and do some deadheading or weeding until it decides to play again......I guess that makes me a Garden Blogger in more ways than one!!!
