Oh no, I added a novi belgii this spring. It's hard gardening in clay, sometimes plants just won't tolerate it over winter. Fingers crossed and hoping mine comes back.

What a lovely dragonfly. It must be a lady dragonfly right;) That first photo makes her look like a piece of jewelry, too pretty to be real.


I added a container pond recently and am delighting in the dragonflies that are attracted to it. Beautiful pics! By the way, I think you have a damselfly, which rests with its wings back instead of out.


I'm with Pam on this Kathleen .. dragonflies have a distinct straight out stance with their 4 wings .. but these little guys are gorgeous too ! Talk about electric BLUE !!
I have had to spread my Maypop horizontally now .. it has been growing like Jack's beanstalk ?? LOL .. all the wet warm weather has it crazy .. now if the buds actually bloom with flowers ?? ;-)


Fantastic damselfy ;)...It looks like a small dragonfly to me, too. Seriously excellent photos. I can't think of a better two friends then the flower of Monch and a Susan! The clematis is dazzling. gail


It's pretty amazing what we can attract to our gardens. I'm sure you'll have all sorts of dragonflies visiting it. We get several types that visit our pond now, although I have no idea what is what.
I agree that 'Monch' would look really pretty by Rudbeckia.

That is a damselfly. :) Is it actually the lilac color that appears on my monitor?


Try this site for identification of various damselfly types:

Needless to say - beautiful shots!

Those are beautiful photos of the damselfly. The top one with the overhead view really shows the symmetry of the markings and that neon colouring. It's so perfectly proportioned. I love the translucent wings showing in the second picture.
