Regina’s Garden

3 09 2007

Regina’s garden is still blooming, despite the heat and drought of the summer. And the profusion of color in her paradise puts my own garden to shame. The odd weather this gardening season took a toll on my garden in the form of shorter plants, less blooming time, and some faithful plants failed to show up at all. Ah, well, gardeners are by nature an optimistic bunch…Oh, fiddle-de-dee…for spring is another season. I shot these images in her garden this morning. The caterpillar is a Black Swallowtail, munching away on the parsley (parsley apparently is not just a garnish anymore). The host plants include carrot, parsley, dill, fennel and Queen Anne’s lace. Regina has discovered they apparently like parsley, too!
