Gremlins Ate My Design!

~What the heck? As I gave one last check to the blog before retiring last night, I noticed that both the header and background were missing! Neither Barb nor I noticed! Was there an unknown update to the theme? Or, did gremlins just eat the design elements? I do not have a clue as to when they disappeared, could have been days. Sigh…… Anyway, all should be back to normal now.

Hope you’re having a grand Labor Day Weekend. Alas, it does “officially” signal the end of summer vacation. Pretty soon the butterflies will find greener pastures. A visit to two local nurseries and my iPhone produced these shots.

Monarch, Woodland Skipper
Painted Lady, Umber Skipper

  1. They’re beautiful! So jealous! You ladies are always taking in breathtaking natural beauty. I haven’t seen a butterfly that colorful in years!


  2. Monarchs are some of my favorite butterflies, I also love the praying mantis. Well… I love most insects. 🙂 Anyway, I often see the butterflies and praying mantis around our home, and who can blame them… we have a lot of flowers outside our house. Which makes a perfect spot for the praying mantis to catch insects. I’m always sad when I see they’ve caught a butterfly, but they have to eat too.


    • Insects and me….not so much! And don’t get me started on spiders! I did have to take a 5 unit Entomology course in college for my major. We were require to collect 75 insects! Extra points were given for a praying mantis since the school didn’t have one in it’s collection. We don’t see them so much. Send some over to eat the destructive ants! 😎
