What's Blooming In Summer

Shasta daisies are the ultimate reliable perennial - they bloom for months, reseed profusely, and grow effortlessly where other plants struggle.

They're also popular with insects and snails and slugs. Here, a black beetle makes a feast of the petals.

A caterpillar and a green beetle share the spoils.

The ants make themselves welcome. And below, a bugs' eye view of the feast.
