Nothing says summer like
Dragonflies are usually found near ponds and wet areas, and thanks to a pond not too far away, I have seen quite a few of these beautiful creatures in my garden.
Here at the Red House Garden, the dragonflies tend to be more in the 1 to 3 inch range. They often perch on my taller plants or places where they can survey the surrounding area for smaller bugs to hunt.
My favorite dragonflies in the garden are the gorgeous little orange Eastern Amberwings that like to hover around my daughters' wildflower garden.
