Summer Garden

  1. 1. Early Summer In A Maine Garden
  2. 2. Bleeding Heart
  3. 3. Great Spangled Fritillary Butterfly on Dianthus (“pinks”).
  4. 4. Great Spangled Fritillary (Speyeria cybele). They are the most common of the large fritillary butterfly species. These butterflies feed on a variety of flowers including thistle, milkweed, dogbane, and verbena (as well as the dianthus seen here). The host plant for their caterpillars is the spring violet (commonly found throughout our yard).
  5. 5. Butterflies have compound eyes with many lenses.
  6. 6. Blue Flag Iris (Iris versicolor) This species of iris grows in the shallows of Caesar Pond. It also seems to be thriving in our garden where we planted it into a heavy, rich soil. As long a muskrats don’t forage in our garden, it will be safe!
