I’m just a photo phreak now-a-days!

Here’s what’s been filling up my storage card these days…

My little Oreo LOVES peanuts, but not the shells. He will crack the shell and extract the peanuts with precision.

Schefflera arboricola – Dwarf umbrella tree
Do you see the hidden treasure it holds?

This bounced into it and the dogs were baffled..
Which way did it go? Which way did it go?

Fall is for spiders! This guy was in my ladder rung.

This is a very old church in Long Grove, Il.
I just thought the entrance was very cool.

And a redhead saunter across the road….

Dr. C. H. Curran, curator of insects at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City started collecting wooly bear caterpillars In the fall of 1948.

According to the legend, the wider that middle brown section is, the milder the coming winter will be. On the other hand, a thin brown band is said to predict a nasty winter.

Research has somewhat proven this theory, but, the twist is the length of the middle section is describing how the last winter was.

If the former is true, we shouldn’t see snow all winter… a PLUS for me!!

Thanks for visiting & keep on planting!

  1. GREAT POST! That is a pretty smart dog to be able to crack peanuts and get them out of the shell! Interesting about the wooly worm, too. SO, they are describing how the LAST winter was… GEEZ! We don’t need to know that! But, I would like to see a winter without snow here in Missouri.

      Two years ago the winter here was the mildest I’ve ever experienced. It only snowed once, stayed over 30F almost the whole season and we had summer in March. Planted my veggies the first week of April! Felt like zone 7, heaven.
      Oreo had many talents 🙂
