Observation notes: Beautiful warm sunny morning, Two Orange-tipped Oakworm Moths flying around my porch. I’m in the pine barrens on Long Island, we have a lot of scrub oak on my property as well. Just brought home several flats of New Guinea impatiens yesterday that I just planted in urns this morning. They seemed interested.
