Today we just kept coming across our little garden friends…
I love this time of year!
This fella showed up in the parsley bed…he is my friend because he eats bug.
Such a good toad!
Isn’t he handsome?!
He has gorgous eyes! Thanks to the macro on my camera I finally got to have a peek at a toads eyeball up close…I am a geek.
He jumped on Lucas and he didn’t even notice…
I ended up trying to help Haley learn the fine art of “catching a toad” the right way (you know…where they don’t pee on ya) but he got away from her and we laughed for a good while watching her attempt to get him…he now lives under the deck (smart fella!)
While I was mowing the side yard tonight I looked over and realized that one of my butterfly bushes was loaded with big old bumble bees…that all seemed to be asleep! I was like “Do bumble bees sleep?!”
Apparently they do or at least they rest…it was just before the sunset.
They were so pretty!
As I was walking the mower around back I looked at another butterfly bush and found this gal hanging out…
Granted I did wonder if she had ate her mate….ewewwwwwww
If the praying mantis is there in the morning I am going to put her in with the red leaf mustard in the garden that is being attacked by buggies…I bet she might eat them for me!
