Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Sedum is a bug magnet

The butterfly, bee and wasp were all busy sucking up nectar from the Sedum.
The days are growing shorter, there is a nip in the air, and soon there will be no more bugs hurriedly going about their business. I am not a winter person, and get a trifle depressed during the long gloomy days of winter.

That's a lot of insects on your sedum! Yes, the days are getting shorter and Winter will be here soon - I'm not really looking forward to it either!

Sedum does indeed invited the bugs. Don't start worrying about the winter quite yet...just think you have the cooler months to plan great things for Spring!

We are not ready for this change of weather.. fall seems so early. However, it looks like we are looking to a few fairly warm days at least for the next several here in the valley. Tomatoes may ripen! ;)

You've got that right girl! I caught a picture of at least 9 honeybees on one of mine. I'm lovin' this weather--cool and rainy one day, sunny and warm the next. No boring weather here.

These insects do look like the ones in my yard. I'm not a winter person, either, and seem to start my pity party around this time of year, knowing that it will be here before I'm ready. It seems like winter weather is coming sooner and staying later each year.
