The action is all three days starting at 11:00 on Friday and Saturday, and 10:00 on Sunday.
A surprise visitor in the garden yesterday, a hummingbird moth. The size of a small hummingbird this moth is easily distinguished by it’s long curved proboscis for reaching into flower blooms. I think this is a Hemaris diffinis. (August 2018)
