in the garden

the ladybugs may have flown away (home?), but there's a preying mantis prowling the garden! looks like she's headed for that tiny white worm on the leaf in front of her!

she casts a frightening shadow.... at least i'd be pretty scared if i were a bug!

the first bloomin' sunflower of the year.

the nursery lady said this is an amaranth. it looks like something from Dr. Seuss to me. it's too shiny and neon for my camera to capture well.
