There are days I walk this path and it’s as though a new plant has grown overnight. I’m sure that’s not really the case but I guess the point is that you really have to keep your eyes peeled to make sure you don’t miss something special.
This emerging flower is what I believe to be a Burdock. As with most things in nature I’m not 100% sure so please let me know if I’m way off or not. It’s the closest name I could find that looked like this before it started blooming.
I love damselflies. They are little sticks with huge eyes that fly and the bonus is they eat mosquitos and other harmful insects. Did you know that there have been fossils found of damselflies dating back 325 million years ago? I think they are the most beautiful insect out there.
But then there is also the cute little ladybugs who apparently have voracious appetites. In its lifetimes of about 2-3 years, it can eat up to 5,000 insects. That tiny little insects favourite food is the aphid. Go Ladybug!
