With the intense heat and insufficient rain this early in the season, I am already combating my share of pests in the garden – many of which I normally don’t see until late summer! With all the recent skirmishes between me and these unwanted visitors, I thought I’d take a break and enjoy the welcome guests I’ve seen in my garden this month. Good critters in my garden!
It’s amazing the critters I find in my garden. From mammals to birds to reptiles to insects (both wanted and unwanted), it’s almost like my back yard is a wildlife preserve. Although I have been unable to get pictures of everything in my garden — most notably the squirrels and insect pests – I have taken quite a few, and I’d like to share some of them with you. I’ve posted a few of these pictures on my blog throughout this spring and summer, but not all. Come take a look!
