More photos of this'n'that today.

Chicory, up close and personal:

A little bee on a bull thistle in bloom:

Graphocephala coccinea, the red-banded leafhopper, on a cup plant. These colourful bugs visit my garden sometimes too.

I don't think we can blame this damage on leafhoppers, though. A lot of the cup plants have been munched, and I'm pinning it on the deer.

There were more frogs plopping into the pond today, as well as one big splash and ripple that I think must have been a muskrat. These are muskrat tracks in the mud:

Purple-flowering raspberries in varying stages of ripeness:
