Still blooming in September

Fellow blogger Jan Huston Doble always has such beautiful photos on her blog, Thanks for Today.

Check out the gorgeous blues, purples and pink flowers she has that are still blooming in her garden this September. I admire her gardens AND her photography.

Thanks for sharing your photos today and always, Jan.

Jan's Note:

  The weather is cooling down and it's been comfortable, in the 60's and 70's, lately. A few days we've even woken up to 45 degrees here in northern VA. The plants are much happier than they were this summer, and I haven't added any additional water in weeks. It has rained on and off, which is just what my garden needed to lose that 'crispy' look.

Check out the photos!

CSI (Critter Scene Investigation?) for Garden Pests

As a green gardener, I always try to encourage people to deal with their garden pests in an environmentally friendly way.

I list many organic pest control methods in this post, Organic Pest Control Methods Explained.

But the first step in controlling insects in the garden is to identify what sort of critter you are dealing with in the first place.

Here's a great little video that I found on the University of Maryland Grow It Eat It website. It's very information and I really like the bug guy.
