So excited to see this zebra swallowtail. I planted my paw paws just for her!

A yellow jacket snitching some of my salad.

Friday, October 12 was an incredibly gorgeous day.  I worked outside two hours longer than I’d planned because I couldn’t stop staring at the blue sky.  I ate lunch in the garden just to soak in some of the sun’s energy.  I was visited by a few yellow jackets interested in my salad.

The sky was fantastic!

I found two stinkhorns growing in a space that was cleared this summer.  Several tree stumps were removed.  I’ve never seen this kind of fungi before.  The cap is covered with a muddy looking slime that attracts flies.  I did not get close enough to smell it.

Phallus impudicus or Phallus hadriani. I cannot tell which it is.
