This is the most recently discovered guest in my front garden, found in the zinnias while i was dead-heading and looking for marigold seed. He is even bigger that the grasshopper, but i neglected to go back out with a ruler. At least 5 inches. Look at the eyes…he knew i was there! Through the camera lens there was an otherworldly feeling. My sister Terri tells me that the large ones are the females; so i expect that is true of the grasshopper too. I think i won’t post the grasshopper mating picture.
One of the great features of this blog is that i can start a page now, and come back and edit to fill in more info as the day unfolds. Actually right now it is 9:30pm on the 29th, so that means i have gotten a jump on tomorrow’s entry. 🙂
Today is the last day of September and with the 1st of October we are supposed to get cooler weather. I am still putting things away and look forward to getting back to quilt work and art.
