Some Insect Wings Are Natural Antibiotics

I first met a Cicada when I lived in Washington, D.C. and was startled at first. Upon doing a little reading I discovered they are a very compelling insect; a joy to watch.
We don't have them in Washington state.

Thanks for the pictures Amer, they're so beautiful!

Amer, these stunningly beautiful cactus reaffirms the value of diversity.

My cactus are well into the spring here. Many of them flowering or preparing to flower. This time it was a hrd winter. For me too to protect them against heavy rains. But all is happy now. Here are my Ferocactus stainesii var. pilosus

and three varities of Golden Barrel(ECHINOCACTUS grusonii ).

Still too wet and cold to "dig in the dirt". My kale didn't winter over like last year. Whole garden starting from scratch, except for asparagus. Gotta get peas in--last year's leftover seeds.

Gotta find some valerian seeds now!

Comment by Plinius on March 15, 2013 at 2:37am

You're never sure what they like, but I had some cats who loved to be high on valerian. One also ate tomatoes...

Chris, I didn't know cats are attracted to valerian. I have a perfect place for it to grow, up near the house, where I try to keep mice out of the pantry. I'll keep you posted.

I think you're right, Sentient, the peas will survive the frost and if I'm lucky the beans too - they came from a packet that said they were good for early growing. Haven't seen any rabbits yet. 

Not all cats enjoy catnip, but you could try valerian.

Amer, fig trees are so easy to grow from cuttings, many methods work.  I like to to give them an early start.  So I treat them special.  Mine get a warm location, on a heating mat or a warm shelf.  They will also root at normal room temperature.  Or even in the garden soil.

Spud, glad to hear it!  Spring is on the way!
