    Ever wonder what's in a bagworms bag? This is an adult female bagworm moth. She has no wings and looks like a pupae. She has been cut open (sorry!) to reveal her eggs. She is completely full of eggs that will hatch in the spring. The hatched caterpillars will disperse by ballooning.

    One of the best blue flowers is blue poppy or Meconopsis. Few flowers come close to such a true blue! #meconopsis #blueflowers #horticulture #ireland #bluepoppy

    Here is an Irish lawn in bloom - gorgeous! So why do we kill dandelions in our lawns? #daisylawn #horticulture #ireland

    Sometimes plants do weird things. Check out this flower on a Bartzella peony. It didn't get the notice that all flowers are to be only yellow! I like it! #bicolorbloom #peony #halfandhalf #iastateu #horticulture #iowa365
