I am recovering from a hail storm the week before Memorial Day, and you may notice evidence. I have been so busy that today was the first opportunity that I had to take a few photos.

VERY nice!

We haven't had hail, thank goodness, but this rain is getting old... EVERY day. One day we got like 5 inches. It just down poured. The ground is so saturated. I can't pull weeds but they are taking over!

Meserva is the name of the lake where I live.

The gardens and the house are on one acre of lakefront property.

Nice yard art. Is that a praying mantis?

Thanks.

There are many that are not for sale as yet, and some people do not understand.

The concept is simple: if there is a price tag, it's for sale. If there is no tag, ask about, but understand if I will not sell it at this time.

FYI- I think preying manits is a good thing to have in the garden. I don't think they are something you want to kill purposely. Some people even buy them to release in the garden, lacewings I think also are good guys.

They say snakes are a good thing in the gardens to, but I don't like them either! *Blush*

Praying mantis eat a lot of harmfully insects and they do not eat plants.

I do believe that they are endangered.
