Before I left Chicago one of my friends gave me this statue. It now resides in my backyard next to a blooming bush of some sort. Today while swimming my husband and I were astonished to see all the moths, butterfly’s, and black wasps buzzing around the orange flowers of this bush…I need to figure out how to make and publish a video on blogger so you all can see it…it is an amazing sight!
All afternoon it looked as if a monsoon was going to blow in….but instead they just kept blowing around us. That means we were able to take a long walk with the dogs. On this walk we encounter a herd of caterpillers….yes…a herd of caterpillars, yellow and green striped…walking up a hill, dozens and dozens of them, looking for food and a place to build their cocoons….it was incredible, I have never seen so many at one time.
After the walk we were able to come home and take a swim…a very refreshing swim…and watch the buzzing bush…and some amazing lightening…but no rain.
The stage is set for my stay-cation…which will begin Friday afternoon…and somehow last for two weeks…
