Now that's an old ploy. The oldest one around. A garage nearby advertises using that one word in great big letters. The smaller font reads "Now that we have your attention." So, there you have it, two cheap shots in one week.
Actually, I do want to show you that very thing, but wait for the reveal.
Everything looks so much greener in the rain. The slugs are chowing down on the rhubarb, but I have the antidote. You do, too, now. Visit Leslie Land right *here* and look for "Death Spray."
Yup, it rained. The windows were washed thanks to John. Everything looks so much brighter now.
Okay, ready for the big reveal? I took this photo because my eyes are failing me and when this lovely, stylized insect (what is it?) flew by, I thought it the most enchanting thing and followed it. Turned out to be two its...er...not sure of pronoun case in this instance. Still, it's beautiful, right? Looks like a regular Fred Astaire of insects all dressed up in a tux.
Have a delightful Friday!
Well, mother nature at it's best! Have a great weekend Vee!ReplyDelete
-giggles- Never thought I'd see a Subject Line like that, here! Way to go Girl!ReplyDelete
And then, "she" finishes with... a beautiful winged creature... No, 2 beautiful winged creatures... "Caught in the act"...
I love it! I totally love it!
I also bet that by now, "she" is having 2nd thoughts about leaving this post up. Please don't, have 2nd thoughts I mean. Be Strong Dear! A bit of *breaking out* here and there, lets off a lot of pent up steam. Right?
Hugs, hugs, hugs, hugs, hugs...
They are so pretty. It does make for an odd looking "insect" when they are together like that, though.
LOve it...the bug, the garden wall decoration...all of it!ReplyDelete
Wasn't going to spend time reading blogs right now but your title snagged me! Happy Friday!ReplyDelete
I love the saucers on your fence! I think I may need to steal that idea.ReplyDelete
Rain? Here too. Green is a lovely colour though.ReplyDelete
And your bug...most interesting.
Does John need some more windows to clean?

LOL I had no idea so when I saw your post I had to stop by. That is very pretty. I love being out in the garden. You never know what is going to show up. I hope you have a wonderful weekend ♥ReplyDelete
Every time I visit your blog, I remember why I fell in love with it. Was that several years ago?ReplyDelete

ooooh hee hee! no, sorry, definitelyReplyDelete
It does look like he's got his dancing shoes on ;-D And your garden is lovely - love the fence..ReplyDelete
I need Death Spray, something is eating the petals off my pansies overnight. Looks like my first day off now that school is over is going to be a sunny one..it's been so darn wet here too. :)ReplyDelete
Hahaha, I accidentally took a picture of two insects humping last year! I was trying to do a closeup of a bloom and was surprised when I saw the bigger image on the computer!ReplyDelete
Love your aged white barn star! We got a very weathered red one that hasn't quite found a hanging home yet!
LOL! Dragon fly love! We saw box turtles in the Brooklyn Botanic Garden yesterday having a summer fling...or so it appeared as I really don't know how they do it?..lol!ReplyDelete
Since you didn't enable comments on your post today, I just came here to comment. :) You know I am not going to say something nasty anyway. LOL. I knew we were kindred spirits, but the more I read the more I realize how much. I love Keith Green, too, and "Stained Glass" is such a powerful song. It is like "Rushing Wind" which is my favorite of KG's. Have never seen the Elizabeth K. Ross quote, but how appropriate and true. May we shine ever more brightly, even in the darkest place, (and you do) for Him! Thanks so much for that post and the song.ReplyDelete
I found you, from reading Sharon.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your sharing. Hope your grandmother is doing better today.
Growing up, my grandmother was the love of my life. Have a good evening:)
