About Today’s Photo:

The bug bane in our ornamental garden is in full and very fragrant bloom. I’m not sure why they call it bug “bane” as the bugs sure do seem to like it. There were a good dozen bald faced hornets enjoying the nectar yesterday along with various flies and a bee or two.

    Could it be what’s in the roots that keeps bugs away? Or perhaps pollinators are appreciated and therefore not “bugs”?
