...and it's not even noon!
when i went outside this morning
i noticed TWO Hibiscus flowers blooming right next to each other.
so i ran back inside to grab my camera.
immediately after i took the picture...
a tiny grasshopper climbed onto one of the flowers.
he obviously wanted his picture taken.
he posed...and i snapped away...
then i spotted another...on one of the Oak Leaf Hydrangea leaves.
THEN...since it was still kinda early...not TOO hot out yet...
we decided to take the four-wheeler across the street...
to the field...to pick more wild blackberries.
wow! they're everywhere!
it was worth the effort...reaching into the thorny bushes...
we picked over a pound!
while picking...we spotted this big grasshopper...
it's called an Eastern Lubber Grasshopper!
to finish out this
=grasshopper kinda day=
here's a picture i took last year, after a torrential rain.
all the tiny grasshoppers taking refuge from the rain...
on the leaves of a potted Begonia!
have a good week...
and a safe journey....enjoy the ride!
