Garden Look-See

Forgive me if you are a person that is not too keen on bugs.
I was completely enamoured with them in the garden this morning. :)

 The diversity in the yard is absolutely amazing this year.  There were lots of bugs last year, but the co-existance this year is more evident.

This was breakfast a couple mornings ago....homemade granola and fresh strawberries from the yard.

Aside from growing bugs and berries, the rest of the garden is catching up.  Cocozelle and nasturtiums are loving the mild temps.

The toms seem to need a little boost, so i am collecting plastic jugs and filling them with water.  I place these around the toms to warm up during the day, and at night they keep the toms a little warmer.

Corn's catching up too....thankfully, the crows have stayed away!!

Scallions are coming up...they were too shaded by the chamomile. :)
 Our neighbour across the street is a sweet Asian lady...we can't speak much because we don't speak each other's language, but we have had a few friendly encounters.  She surprised me in the garden the other day with these two heads of lettuce that her family grew in their yard.

Back to the bugs.
Don't you just love these little guys?

He looks like he's keeping watch over my toms.
They're fine, but i wish he'd erradicate the aphids from my cauliflower!!
I am trying to figure out if these are soldier boys or possibly something like a longhorned beetle.
They don't seem to have the same type of abdomen that they soldier boys do.

"Hey Doll, how ya doin'?"

Who can resist that cute little face, i'd like to know?!?
