inching along

A late afternoon visit the the garden at Pineland Farms in New Gloucester, Maine provided a different garden view than the last time I visited (just 5 weeks ago). The contrast between full summer bloom and the flowers that remain as the season edges into autumn was amazing.

As we were leaving we stopped to look at the bright purple seed pods of a purple hyacinth bean vine. Look! There is an inchworm happily moving along the edge of the bean.

Many thanks to Lorah for pointing out this inchworm!
