The long nights favor the blooming of chrysanthemums. The flowers are still starting to open, while the gaillardia seed head is already developing, had already shed the petals.
At the height of the marigold blooming days, the insects are so plenty, including the butterflies. Look at the legs of this big wasp, full of pollen!
Some petals are still attached, but eventually will be totally gone.
Gaillardia already stopped blooming, i hope those seed heads are bearing seeds for the next season.
I am amazed at our little creatures, they are also orange. I am sorry i am not familiar with its ID.
I would love to try linking this to the Thursday Two Questions Meme. This is my first time to link there. Here are my two questions:
1. Should i for the first time get the seeds from these marigolds to plant next year?
2. I have not stored ornamental seeds yet, but plants keep coming when season comes, will the
seeds remain viable with our tropical dry conditions?
