Your blog is one of the nicest blogs I've seen online. You do a good job pointing out issues.

Thanks Equilibrium.
Check out this cute beetle mound near a woodland edge garden. What do you think? Would it be beneficial done this way?
The gardener in question says she piled logs then covered with layers of turf removed from elsewhere in the garden. On top of that went leaf mould and then it was planted with native plants. The logs will rot providing habitat for many creatures but beetles in particular.
I have pieces of logs decaying in many areas already but I like the look of this.

The first picture is a close-up of the mound. The other is of the beetle mound in relation to the garden. It is on the right center.

Beetles are good???? I'm not through dealing with the thought that worms can be bad. Y'all are trying to give me a headache.

biigblueeyes,good and bad are always matter of perspective, so don't fret.

I need help making a decision about which photo to use at Gardeners Gone Wild.

A photo of any native plant in a garden setting , either a close up or in the landscape, that you think merits attention will qualify.

I'm no help - I like them all. Maybe you can get Dave Stiles to give his professional photo judge opinion.
