Winged Things In My Garden

 I've been enjoying sitting out in my small backyard this summer. It's so pleasant to read or eat meals there and watch whatever critters are buzzing around. This summer, I've been trying to increase our yard's attractiveness to birds and friendly flying insects (no wasps, thank you!). We've always put out bird feeders, but this summer we added suet feeders to attract a larger variety of birds. I also put out a hummingbird feeder, although it hasn't been very popular yet. Last week I added a butterfly puddler (Google it), although it's too early yet to see if it will attract butterflies. I've noticed a lot of dragonflies in the yard. I love to watch them; their wings glistening in the sunlight. Although I don't know how to lure them to the garden, I do know how to wear them, or rather their likeness, on my ears.

I've combined the lilac colored metal dragonflies with pink and purple lampwork beads. Lavender crystals sparkle at the top and bottom of these beauties. I'm quite infatuated with these earrings. You can find them in my online shop at Linda Landig Jewelry.

Although we usually have warm. sunny Septembers, I am starting to sense a subtle movement toward autumn. I'm going to treasure every last moment of warm weather. How about you?

  1. How very lovely! You'll never be without butterflies if you plant buddleia.

    1. I'll have to look that up and get some. Thanks for the tip.
