pod corn, a corn flower, and a couple of bugs
fern's pod corn seed has turned into robust plants and they are beginning to catch up to the maize height wise...some of it anyway...some of the maize plants are getting deep into the season and are almost in full flower...we will be seeing ears soon enough..a bug's life int he garden? well the maize is harboring something of a population...like the aphid eating lady bug in the third photo and a healthy looking mosquito hunter in the dragon fly on the bottom...i saw a honey bee but it eluded my camera...and i avoided the wasps.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
