Wow, so much going on at VEG this week getting ready for our 10th Anniversary Festival! Thank you to all our members who are coming out to help at the gardens and to all of you behind the scenes, making copies, cutting out butterfly masks, putting together hummingbird feeders, getting giant butterfly cut-outs made for photos, donating plants and so much more! This festival could not be possible if not for all of you!!!! Brynn Lee

4.The Cicadas are everywhere! Spotted this shell on a Canna leaf. About 2,500 species of cicada have been described, and many remain to be described. Cicadas live in temperate-to-tropical climates where they are among the most widely recognized of all insects, mainly due to the large size and unique sound. Cicadas are often colloquially called locusts, although they are unrelated to true locusts, which are various species of swarming graasshoppers. Cicadas are related to leafhoppers and spittlebugs. ~~Brynn Lee
