Ohhh how it feels timely to create a post about flowers – good for the spirit (mine and hopefully yours).
When planting flowers from seed I tend to favour varieties that attract beneficial insects to the garden – love those bumble bees and lady bird bugs.
Zinnia California Giants
Marigold Naughty Marietta
Here are some of my favourite bee & ladybug attracting flowers:

Some bee only attracting flowers I love:
* Lawn chamomile
Flowers are a gift. Now don’t you feel refreshed and uplifted?
It has now been 18 months, since we moved to our semi rural home.
Even though distinctive, I have never seen these bugs when we lived in the inner city of Sydney (or anywhere in Sydney for that matter).
As yet, I have been unable to discover their identity. Hence the call out for help.
What are they? Are they a gardener’s friend or foe?
