The spider plant has a whole litter of baby spiders....
and they're hanging off their mother like a web of arachnids.
Saturday is wash day....
beneath the "lightning tree."
Every second or so; I hear sounds of swishing from
flyswatter tails. Violet violently swats her's like she's beating
Inside the greenhouse, I found Prince Charming?
But no kiss today...
He did seem to enjoy his photo shoot though.
While chasing butterflies;
something scurried behind me.
....I see you Road runner!
Watching out the corner of my eye, he traipsed around the whole corn patch,
Started coming back towards me.
As I walked around ... he kept appearing?
Are you stalking me Road runner????
Is it just me or does he kind of look like those things
on Jurassic Park?
Before long I saw another ...
.... I turned my attention to them both and ....
then it dawned on me what they were hunting!
They eat dragonflies!
I did not know that until just today!
I'm sorry Roadrunners but
Haaaa!!!!!!!!!!!! Git outta here.... Go on now!
.... Back to chasing butterflies from bloom to bloom,
this little tangerine was so fun to watch.
Her favorite color has to be pink.
The swallowtails were most fond today of the butterfly bushes.
There were a couple black ones hanging around too.
Recently I added two more hummingbird feeders and
they're really getting thick.
This one finally stood right on the ledge and was easier
This one kept hiding out here coz there was so much fighting going on.
This was the best closeup.
I loved her little feet on the cannas flowers.
Well I better sign off.
I'm off to the bait shop in the hopes that they have goldfish.
I had 7 in this little pond...
... well ya know that algae stuff you can buy when your pond gets gross?
... I learned the hard way that... less "really is"
I think I've flushed it all out enough now and
hopefully the rain too has helped.
Gonna try it again.
