The other day when we backed the golf cart out of the shed, this beautiful moth was sleeping underneath on the cool, dark gravel !! Isn't it pretty? And I'm sure those black dots that look like eyes to his predators are enough to scare them away! When I get time, I'll get online and look him up to see what kind it is.
Honeybees! We have five honeybees in the yard!!! And look how fat their little legs are with pollen they've collected.........I've been sad since reading how our honeybee population has dwindled frighteningly all across the country. We need them to pollinate almost everything! If we weren't so old and decrepit, I'd see about setting up a few hives to attract some, but we have enough to tend around this place already!
"Mama Cat" came to help me weed the petunia patch the other day and she cooperated nicely for me to get her photo with her "cat crossing" sign! It should state "Fat Cat Crossing"!!! Heh, heh............we believe a fat cat is a healthy cat around here.
DH and I just came from the Wise, N.C. 4th of July parade, and I will post pix here tomorrow. They nearly got rained out, but it's let up for now. We also need the rains, but the little parade carried on in spite of showers. When we left the Wise Baptist Church side yard/parking area, there were lots of folks sitting around in their beach chairs under the shade of huge old oak trees watching the cooking and listening to the live band........what a nice way to spend the day! I hope all of you are having a nice holiday weekend, too!
