We have found humidity once again in my Georgia Gardens. My sinus tells me a front is coming and soon the humidity will be gone again. Hopefully, for the remainder of the year. But I am not holding my breath on that one. I am however, going to enjoy the rain this front brings with it.
Above you can see the Butterfly Bush Island still giving us color. The Butterfly Bushes are the best early summer to late fall bloomer in the yard for me. You also see Volunteer Perwinkle and Susan's giving me color. If this photo went higher up, you could see Angel Trumpets in bloom. So we do have some blooms hanging around for the Hummingbirds, bees and butterflies to enjoy.
I walk out onto the front porch and find a strange thing happening under the Ferns. Can you see the mess on the railing and the floor of the porch?
Zooming into the railing, you see the tiny round balls of dirt/mud or something else. I just don't know what is causing this mess. I have not really taken the time to try and squash them or investigate as I see the mess at the wrong time and just grab the broom and sweep it off the porch.
This mess is occurring under each of the 4 hanging Ferns. I had a posting titled "Vinca Poop" back in 2008. (Click HERE to see) That posting had me on my hands and knees looking for a critter as I knew I had found its poop. The end of that Story had me discovering little tiny black seeds rather then animal poop. Since I have not had time to really get to the bottom of this matter, I am just going to ask you bloggers if you have ever seen this before and what it could be. How ironic, I don't have time to investigate the mess on my porch but have time to write about it. Oh, gee, I think I may need to rethink my priorities. Ha, So What say you? Do I have FERN POOP, In the Garden....
