Photo of the Day – 2014-08-04

ParrySights-600-9742More critters in the sedum, in this case a yellow sedum. Although this plant was found in a non-garden area it may well have escaped from a garden some years ago. The critters? I suspect they are red spider mites (Etranychus urticae), smaller than the head of a pin (this close up photo can be deceiving). They seem to be the ‘caretakers’ of Candyland and are found on the pink sedum as well. (July 2014)
