Or should that be "Woe is I"? LOL...
Yesterday was a bust. I couldn't write a word. **sigh**
Why is it when I set aside all kinds of time for writing, I end up blocked? Oh well, writing day comes again soon *G*.
DD found the COOLEST caterpillar yesterday!! The thing was HUGE -- easily 4 - 5" long and thick as my finger. He was just cruising across the road and she nearly ran him over with her bike. Of course, we had to stop, examine, and realize we didn't know what kind it was... so we brought it home. What else would any normal person do? Check it out:
So, after a great deal of research with decided it was the Hummingbird "sphinx" moth larvae. Those are my absolute FAVORITE moths -- they diurnal (active during the day) and look like little hummingbirds because of how their wings work. Check out this page for some really neat pictures of the critter.
And, no, we're not raising it inside... We put it out in our backyard because, odds are, it was looking for a place to make its pupae and we are very bug friendly.
We also found this weird looking creature:
My camera doesn't do close-ups well, sorry... but it was some sort of beetle on our green bean leaves. The leaves weren't nibbled on, so I don't think it was eating them. And it looks like a tiny turtle sprawled over a white spot -- and when it moved, it moved FAST!
Anyone have any ideas?
It's been so cold at night that I pulled up my garden and put the flannel sheets on the bed. That can only mean one thing, right? Yep... it warmed up immediately!! LOL...
