I don't have my E. maculatum staked, and it seems reasonably sturdy.
Having said that it's in a sheltered spot, with respect to wind and so on.

Good God, that's one of the worst Web sites I've seen in some time.
Absolutely terrible.

Nice gardens, but her design skills do not extend to Web design!

It's hard to tell any difference, honestly I know a bit about bikes, but nothing about trailers!

They all look completely reasonable. More than likely the baby one is going to be not really what you want. I'd probably go with the Nashbar one. I've bought bike stuff from them a number of...

yup, I was right first time.
There are no bosses on the seat stays.

This means you should go easy with loads on a back carrier.

Oh, I'm sorry equi!

A boss is a point on the frame where they have welded a threaded hole (almost like a nut inside the frame). It's a point that you can screw a bolt to.

The stays are those...

Oh really?

Well, I was more moving it because it's been there for a few years and is starting to get to be massive. I tend to add everything I can get my hands on to the soil, and it seems it's...

I can't see exactly, but there appears to be no rear stay bosses (ie in the right places) on your frame for that sort of load.
That is, you can put a carrier onto the bike, but it won't be one...

I don't know what to compare against, but, essentially with no real justification for doing so I would say the butterfly count does seem very low this year too.

Goldenrod seems to get a fair showing for me.

I think part of the deal is though you need to have a good established patch of the plant, and the locals will then know about it and make the trip.

Nah. Dolphins are a good laugh. So are porpoises. Great surfers, but when one is landing right beside you they can suddenly seem big.

Not that I am implying that animals are not curious or intelligent, for sure.
Just that they exist in a very different reality than we do.
