Monarch on Joe Pye Weed. It’s October 1 and what a great sight. Monarch enjoying a meal on a native plant. This time of year most flowers have stopped blooming but many native species still have flowers. If you don’t have native flowers in your garden, fall is the perfect time to start planning next year’s wildflower garden. Another sign of fall. Very pregnant Praying Mantis looking for a place to lay her egg sack. Mantis change colour to blend in with their surroundings so their prey can’t see them. This one is brown to blend in with the brown grasses and leaves of fall. Cleaning day at the farm. Setting up the indoor “winter sand baths” for the turkeys and chickens so they can keep themselves clean during the winter. @ Village Market (at Waldorf)
