Worm or what, number @

Hi,

Just wondering if I "fell through the cracks" because I haven't seen an answer to my question. I sent a question, with pictures, on May 13 asking for an ID of the insect.

Please let me know if you need more information, etc.

Thank you for your time,
Mary Beth Hahn

Pollinator Lawns

Greetings - I am interested in converting my lawn (at least back yard) into a pollenator, or bee, lawn. I live in Beaverton and have a pretty standard size suburban back yard. The online sources like the Xerces Society have good general guidance. The best single source I found is this website http://www.blue-thumb.org/turfalternatives/pollinator-friendly-bee-lawn/ -- it's a clean water agency in Minnesota. My question is this: are there recommended seed mixes for a bee lawn in the Pacific Northwest? I'm not looking to create a meadow, rather still a semi-lawn appearing area which is mown high and infrequently and is drought tolerant. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Norwegian Deborah Maple leaves turning brown on edges

I have a new Norwegian Deborah Maple about 15 meters high when I purchased it. It was newly planted in November 2018 and came from a reputable Nursery. I am just outside London, the UK so relatively cool climate. The tree produced an abundance of healthy green leaves and seed pods. The leaves are now turning brown at the edges are curling on about a third of the tree all over. I am watering the tree now twice a week but was only watering about once every two weeks before. What could be the cause and can I save the tree?

Best sheep for weed control in western mountains.

I am curious about having sheep on my property and hoping they can help take care of some of the cheat grass and leafy spurge. I would also be interested in the meat, and then finally the wool.

My lilac bush changed colors

I have a full grown lilac bush at my home, and for the last 3 years it has produced white flowers. This year however my tree is producing purple flowers. From what I have read, lilacs do not change the color of their flowers.
