Praying Mantis

praying-mantis For me, this is the time of year where gardening feels more like an inconvenient labor than a labor of love — mostly because of the lingering heat and the sum of working my you-know-what off all spring/summer. It’s also the time when nurseries discount their inventory by 50% or more — so, it’s difficult to not take advantage of the bargains.

The funny thing is whenever we begin feeling like we want to ditch the gardening gloves, Mother Nature always seems to offer a symbol of inspiration. Today, it came in the form of this beautiful praying mantis — who seemed delighted to offer several poses for a mid-day photo session.
