Moonbeams & garden dreams 3

13 Sep

“Wings beating a ferocious tempo, the little bat swooped and circled, attracted no doubt by the heady scent and delicate white blooms of the honey suckle.”  by Mary Francis, June 9, 2001; Indianapolis Star.

Attracting bats did not win me over with the moon garden concept.  We have had a pair of huge raccoons at the bird feeder about 10 p.m. earlier this summer.

“The ultimate catch for a moon gardener is a luna moth, the gorgeous luminous green monster moth that loves the night.”

    I love the idea of a Moon Garden. Maybe that will give me some inspiration for my back yard. I’ve never seen the white coneflowers. Purple ones are my favorite but always seem to succomb to some mysterious ailment. I do have good luck with black-eyed Susans which are also a favorite of the goldfinches. I’ve watched the little yellow birds ride a stem down to the ground in their quest for seeds. It’s fun to watch their erratic flight patterns and hear their distinctive song.
