Can it be true? Summer is almost over?
I sincerely hope everyone has enjoyed this Summer!
I chose to take an extended break from my computer this summer...I hit the off button on my cell phone! Not to worry, I still had the land line home phone so I was not TOTALLY disconnected from the outside world...but I found that I spent quality time with my friends and family...my world slowed down...there were fewer interruptions...therefore less stress...and I enjoyed every precious moment...quietly...peacefully...productively!
So here is a glimpse into my garden this morning...Aesop's fable about the "Grasshopper and the Ant" tickled my imagination so I caught the main characters in photos...
This Grasshopper is chillin' out on the swimming pool float...wherever did he get that idea? Of course he and his buddies have been nibblin' on my Wood Fern up a storm!
These are a "FEW" of the pesky fire ants that definitely fall into the category of "the bane of my existence"...they appear to be very busy...could this be a warning of a COLD Winter?
