  1. Greetings to All,

    During the months of August through October (2009), I was a frequent visitor to the Washington Youth Garden, photographing small creatures such as insects and spiders. I have uploaded a selection of my photographs to FLICKR:

    Please note that the Slide Show option is also available at the Flickr site.

    I would like to express my appreciation to Chris Turse, Garden Coordinator, for making me feel welcome each time I came to the garden and telling me about some of the butterflies and other bugs he had seen on that day. I think the Washington Youth Garden is a great project and a great place to visit as well. Because of organic gardening (no pesticides), I am sure many small creatures must also feel welcome there.

    With my best wishes for the New Year,

    Pearl

  2. Hi Pearl (and WYG peeps!),

    You spurred me into action: I finally got around to throwing together the Youth Garden bug photo post I've been tossing around for months. You can click the link to see my photos on my blog. Lots of pretty critters come to the Youth Garden--including puppies!
