One season following another

last gasp

Boy howdy did I work out in the lawn and garden over the weekend. And it wasn't a moment too soon as I was incredibly lazy about doing that this summer. Lazy by my standard anyway. I was still puzzlingly, frantically obsessive compared to most, I guess. NO. WEEDS. EVER. We had a gorgeous fall day with temps in the 70s so I mowed and trimmed and pruned (which of those sounds more naughty I'll leave for you to decide) to my anal retentive heart's content, clad in shorts and skinny-t for what may be the last time this season.

Do you love this praying mantis as much as I do? For whatever reason, a praying mantis is like a lucky totem for me. Like she's the cricket to my Mulan. OK, OK, I just like to pretend I'm Mulan.

Oooh...pretty! I'm so glad I'm moving somewhere where flowers are out year round to look at.

I can handle the mantis, but it just reminds me of the big ole Florida bugs that are going to attack me while I sleep. :shiver:
