outside things

This is the trumpet vine the hummingbirds like.
(It's also called cow's itch, because it makes
some people itch. Why "cow's," I know not.)

This is Jimmy. He is on a hazelnut. I don't know what
exactly he is, but he did NOT want his picture taken.

This is ironweed. I think it's pretty, so
we let it grow, despite it's questionable name.

And here's one of the
gorgeous green guys who love our blackberries.
Guess what it is? I didn't know until today,
but it's a June bug! I always thought June bugs were only
that brown/copper color. Live and learn.

If anyone knows Jimmy's real name, please enlighten me.
