Make one thing every day, wander like a gypsy, and shine happiness like the sun

Um… I guess it’s not a bug baby Bjorn??

on August 28, 2012

I apparently failed entomology 101


Asclepias tuberosa or butterfly weed


Little monarch caterpillar-aww he’s cute!


And I shall call you Heimlich


Katy,did you see those dirty dishes in the sink??

Don’t I feel silly- I told my kids to come quick to watch the mommy ladybug carrying her baby.  Because the poor baby couldn’t fly yet.  Uh mom-that’s not what google says.  I liked the picture nonetheless, and I’ve included some other backyard friends.  The monarch butterfly caterpillars like milkweed, or asclepias, which I’m attempting to cultivate in different varieties-a butterfly buffet of sorts.  The katydid was spying on my messy kitchen but was so cute I let her look. The hawk has been eluding me for weeks-finally got him though.  Yes, he’s not an insect, but he’s my sunshine today, so I had to include him (or her;)

    Your comment about the ladybugs is hilarious! It reminds me of the sloths on the back cover of Adam Rex’s children’s book, PSSST!
