Oh well done, Phasmid! I even found a photo of a pinky one on Google and it likes lime tree leaves. The table is under a lime tree.

Maggots in compost bin

I leave my little bin outside in summer, don't want those flies in the kitchen. Needs emptying on compost heap more often and washing out.

HELLO FORKERS!

Morning all, overslept. Must rush, plant potting to do before going out to lunch.

Decaying veg  attracts fruit flies, they lay eggs, eggs hatch maggots, they become fruit flies. Decaying veg becomes compost, flies lose interest, OK for use.

No. I thought milkweed was a wild flower I have, but looking at this it isn't. Wonder what my low growing little thing is

Verdun could always come here and help with the potting. Lots of other interesting gardening stuff for him to do too, like weeding and cutting back.

My parcel of plants came late morning, but I've only had time to pot on half of them, over 200, mostly pansies and violas. Lunch, car to garage, 2 visitors, watered pots and now it's to late. Will have to finish tomorrow morning, but going out to lunch.

Woolly Bear, the caterpillar of the Tiger Moth seems the closest, but not quite right.
