I know, everyone! I KNOW! a second bloom day post, ON BLOOM DAY. don't hold your breath for the Foliage Followup, though. Mostly because I will be spending all day tomorrow sitting at the convention center taking an 8-hour long Professional Engineering exam. Your positive thoughts are greatly appreciated.
As you can see, I pulled out the telephoto lens...of course that was to take pictures of the Swallowtail caterpillar, which is only 1/2" long. Maybe this counts as the Foliage Followup. So, check back tomorrow to check out this picture. Only this picture, not the other ones, otherwise it doesn't count. As I said, Swallowtail caterpillar. It's on my new dill plant which I got specifically to help repel the squash vine borer.
Next up we have the obligatory shot of the Tropical Milkweed I bought a few weeks ago. You know the hardest thing about taking pictures in the wind? getting pictures that are in focus. I didn't even try to get the toadflax which is still blooming (yellow, pink, and purple).
And finally there's the Society Garlic I got from Bob at Draco last year.
Other things that are blooming:
The previously mentioned Toadflax (you can see a picture here)
The Dr. Huey rose (Thanks to Lori at the Gardener of Good and Evil for the ID. a picture of that can be seen here)
The Snap Peas (which can be seen here)
I also think there might be some marigolds left, but the roly polies are all over them, so they probably aren't going to last too much longer.
