mysterious and spooky, they're all together ooky...
ok, now that you've got the Addams Family theme song stuck in your head...
follow me...if u dare...
yesterday i saw a bug on my hibiscus.
actually, sam spotted it first and called to me 'what the hell is THAT?!'
wow. a Wheel bug.
it's a type of Assassin bug!!
what could be spookier than a Wheel bug?
TWO Wheel bugs!!
a perfect sighting for this month!
(sorry for the not-so-good picture, the sun was blaring & i couldn't even see the image in the viewer)
lately we've had way too many nocturnal spiders
coming out & weaving their webs on the front porch.
i don't mind the ones that stick to the periphery...
like this orb weaver...
(by day she hides under the base of this old rusty candle holder)
the spiders that weave their webs on the porch ceiling...
i brush them off into the garden on either side of the porch.
night after night...they seem to find their way back to the same spot.
i was about to put the cover back on one of the rain barrels...
when i saw this weaver swimming...frantically.
he must have fallen from the roof.
yes, i rescued him.
last week...i made time to get a little creative!
remember the snake bones i found on the side of the road...
here they are after i cleaned them.
|snake vertebrae & rib bones|
when i have some cleaned bones lying around...
i get that urge to DO something with them!
so i painted a snake (with acrylics) on a piece of wood...
then added some of the vertebrae...
i'll glue them down...
maybe add a few ribs to follow the curve of the snake...
then spray with an acrylic sealer.
i've already added a sawtooth hanger to the back!
well...enough spooky-ish stuff for now.
thanks for wandering by...or crawling by...or creeping...or lurching...or stumbling...
stay cool. be safe.
“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there,
wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”
