What's happening in the garden this week? Well, in the bluebird box on the south side of the garden, my bluebird pair are raising their second family of the summer. As I always say, you can't have too many bluebirds! In other bird news, the hummingbird traffic has picked up a lot this week. I think the fall migration has already started.
Elsewhere in the garden, as I reported in my Bloom Day post earlier in the week, the Duranta erecta has been drawing in butterflies by the dozens! The Tiger Swallowtails seem to be particularly attracted by the plant. I've seen as many as four of them nectaring there at a time.
Things are quiet in the garden this week, except for the song of the cicadas during the daylight hours and the song of the frogs at night. It is high summer here - time to kick back and take it a little easier. I can do that.
