Wednesday Yardening

Today was warm and partly sunny.

I went out and took pictures.   Sawtooth sunflowers, some new asters in the prairie garden, the purple and the pink sedum are blooming.  :D  Also there are pears all over the pear tree.  I saw a preying mantis feeding on a butterfly, and a couple of grasshoppers humping.  Sometimes it's all about perspective -- I didn't see the mantis or grasshoppers until I crouched down to photograph the colorful wing of the butterfly.

Later I went back out and watered plants.  It's dry here.  Someone mentioned online that the wetland at our local nature center is all dried up.  :(
