Hosta – Not sure of variety. These are in my yard and the flowers smell like gardenias! I do cut these and bring them inside to smell up my bedroom. I think it helps me sleep better.

We did score some very small, yet pungent garlic. We’ll see about the onions. They were really small.

Love the colors. I think they are dyed.

Desmia

One of my favorite bug ID site: BugGuide.net stated how to ID these guys…
Identification:
Many of the ten North American Desmia species are similar with variable markings. Best determined by genitalia or DNA.
Hmmm. I don’t think I’m going to flip the little guy over.
