Carefree Saturday 17

Sept 1, 2019

Ugg! This is what I was doing all morning Saturday! Well, until 10am! It still needs a little work, but the bulk of it is gone. There’s some roots left (loose) and all I need to do is rake that out.

I started working on this garden back in 2016, before my dad went into hospice care. And I’ve put it off until now. And I can promise you, it will never happen again! In a week or two, I will be digging up some iris’ and transplanting them back into this garden. This garden originally had iris’ in it, then tiger lilies. Now, it has succulents, milkweed and soon – iris’.

mostly finished

And I found some pretty cool…stuff?

bleached by the sun?

Yes, that’s a snake skin and I’m hoping that it’s been bleached by the sun! I’ve never seen a white snake around here. If it’s not a bleached black snake skin, I have no idea what it is. I guess I’ll be keeping my eyes open for different snakes. (Thinking about it, I guess it could be a gray rat snake, which is a possibility. We do have gray rat snakes here but it’s been a while since I’ve seen one.)

A caterpillar (woolly bear) and an inch worm (?). It was moving like an inch worm and was about the right size, so I’m calling it an inch worm. This caterpillar was all orange. The one in the first set of photos was pure black…so winter is going to be tough, I guess. (According to the farmer’s almanac it’s going to be bitter cold and wetter (snowy and icy) than normal.

And then as I was finishing up, I found this praying mantis. He wasn’t too bothered by my presence.

You make me blush!

Just playing around in photoshop. Actually, this month (Sept) you will be seeing a series called “My Alien World” or something like that. And no, that’s not the surprise either! Only a few minutes to go!

A carefree letting go of oneself, not a caution, but a wise blindness.
