A Stroll in the Garden

It’s not so much how busy you are, but why you are busy.  The bee is praised.  The mosquito is swatted. -Mary O’Connor

Discoveries in the Garden

In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks. ~John Muir

It is always good to slow down and take a walk once in a while.  It refreshes body and soul and one never knows what one might discover.

A nest in the apple tree:

A crab spider hiding out in the phlox (she is so clever with her camouflage):

And a pine beetle:

Oh yes, he is alive!

I think the dent in the beetle’s wing casing was caused by an adventurous kitten.

She only looks innocent!

 What discoveries have you made on your walks?
