It's a bugs life...



I don't know what this little bug is, but it's been hanging out on one of the rose bushes for about a week now...
He isn't eating the roses or the leaves...maybe he's eating some bugs...I don't know...I'm not really sure what he is...but as long as he doesn't cause any problems...he can stay.
This Summer has been a pretty mild one heat wise, but I hear that's going to be changing...I knew it would eventually get hot and I heard it's supposed to get to 101 tomorrow, so I got all of my gardening done this evening before dark...that leaves me time to take a nice long walk early tomorrow morning...It's hard this time of year to do both... gardening wins out most days...but I really enjoy walking too! I have been working on finishing up an order for several bags...hopefully they will be done by tomorrow or Thursday...I'll show you what I've done then...until then...goodnight, my friends!!

Wow, 101!! Stay cool and inside! Our leaves are already starting to turn color--I think the summer of 2011 for Ireland was nonexistant.

That large bug... yucko. I don't know what its name is because I'd be running the other way if I saw it. ;) Great pictures, though!

hmmm...he looks like a beefed up grasshopper...maybe from everything he's been eating in your yard this summer! :D

He doesn't even look real...more like a cartoon bug! I think it is amazing you got that close to take the pictures!
