Up close with Portulaca

This afternoon I spent hours removing this weed, Portulaca, from the north garden. Up close, this succulent looks interesting, but it rapidly grows and produces a mat that covers the soil and producing seeds that hang around in the soil for years.

This medium-sized bee is brightly coloured and very shiny.

We had a wonderfully relaxing day. We got out the tubes and took them upstream to float down. We had fun with a toddler and collected animals from the stream, including this water strider.

One of my friends stayed at this farm north of Grafton over the winter. The barn was built by the owner, originally for chickens. The farm has a beautiful pond (with all the accoutrements like a slide and rope swing).

This pale white and brown moth flits around grasses in the meadow by the creek.

Apparently this moth, Pyralis farinalis, is the flour mealmoth. I hope this doesn’t mean that we have an infestation.
