While enjoying the south side view facing east, one of the blue, emerald green regulars dropped by to imbibe from a bush and ground cover flowers.
They prefer the violet-red spectrum mostly, as you will see in the list below. Hummingbirds are great warriors, but get along well with Spindalis, often sharing in the Calliandra by the east side sidewalk garden.
Spindalis * and Hummingbirds
Calliandra haemathocephala *
Hibiscus rosa sinensis *
Beetles black/brown *
Coccoloba uvifera *
Snails and Slugs
Hibiscus rosa sinensis
* Brown beetles chew the edges of leaves, while the soul brothers imbibe nectar. These large ones are probably the worst designed for flying creatures.
But all is not nice in the garden of eden here. Murraya paniculata, Calliandra, Citrus sinensis/aurantifolia, are a pain in the ass, with constant white flies and different sucking insects. Fortunately,
constant monitoring helps to control them scumbags creatures of god.
That is that.
What do you know. The garden as a menu, for us and them.
Let the record show that all the above mentioned, culprits if I may, have been caught in the action, thus fact and true, by your humble servant.
Apaga i vamonoh.
