It was a nice weekend. There was a birthday party, and a trip to a nursery, and a bunch of insects. I’m posting these backwards…because I can. A couple hours ago, my dad found a stick insect in the garden. I’d never seen one outside of the confines of a cage in a lab, so this was very exciting.
A face only a mother could love. And me. I love it.
It was a big, gangly sucker. It had a hard time navigating around my arm with its strange shape.
This picture was from a plant nursery that had a few nice, distinct garden zones and a little grove showcasing different garden furniture and ornaments.
At the nursery, there was a big old barn/potting shed with different garden tools.
It was a big, neat old barn.
Near the vegetable garden, we found a little frog. I think it might be a leopard frog.
Isn’t he sweet.
Beautiful caladium leaf

Back in my vegetable garden, what I think is a stink bug nymph.
The progress of one of my pumpkins
One of my pumpkin plants — only one of four or five, all the same — has developed this speckled pattern on its leaves.
