I found this dead bat right outside our backdoor Friday morning I think it was. Dh disposed of the poor critter, I have no idea what killed it except we did have exceptionally high winds and really hard rains. I'm not sure if it is a male or a female so included a shot of it's belly. We have bats clining to the north side of our house just under the eaves and STILL have mosquito's everywhere.

I've never seen this plant with white blossoms before, normally they are lavender to purple, this year, however, mosthave white blossoms. This leaves me wondering if the excess rain has something to with this.
NOTE: (08/20/08) It would appear that blue vervain has a rare white varient this year is a flood year and almost all the blue vervain in my area has white blossoms!

My mullien and milkweed are both close to six foot tall in height. I'm amazed as I transplanted them from the neighbors yard to mine this spring - right before the flooding began. I really didn't expect them, or anything else in my garden, to survive.
