Insects in the garden


We have been busy cutting trails and clearing some of the trees and shrubs in the garden to open up the space, especially around the passive solar heater which is in shade.  Actually the solar heater is damaged and needs replacing but more about that later.

While working in the garden and the trails you really notice the amount of flying insects that are around. Here are some pictures of what we have seen.
