Spring, or perhaps I should say early summer, has arrived. At last we are having warm, sunny days.
Yellow flags, white flags, and poppies are in full bloom. At last we are having a good year of poppies. I covered them during the last week of rain because they are so fragile that one good shower reduces to soggy masses of tissue paper.
Due to the continued rain, chill, and most particularly the various caterpillars the gardens, pond and pool are in a sorry state. Now to play catch up!
We had many praying mantis egg sacs last fall. Two days ago we found babies had hatched from one of them. I managed to get a shot of this little guy before it took off. This is a much enlarged photo. It was about one quarter the size shown and almost transparent.
As always, thanks for stopping by........*s*
