I put a little "WET PAINT" sign on the board I painted out in the catio the first thing this morning to see if it would help keep the mosquitos from landing on it and getting stuck in the paint. One skeeter was not a reader, and ended up in the paint. Not bad for the hundreds of mosquitos that were swarming around after I finished the can of spray paint. The spray can probably has a C02 propellent that attracted the attention of so many mosquitos.
I go out and walk the garden every morning, and there has been a lot of dew on the roses after our evening thunderstorms. The bees have been working the wild flowers, especially the mini sunflowers. As many of our roses have faded, the various lilies are starting to bloom, and I caught sight of movement in the darkness on the ditch at the end of our walk this evening. I got out my flashlight to discover a tiny toad hopping across the ditch bank in front of us.
