This would have been a good choice for ‘I’ last week: Infestation!

Car

My favorite car, ’92 Oldsmobile Toronado Trofeo. It was mine for 16 years and still holds a piece of my heart. This is not my photo, it was provided to me after restoration by new owner. 

I keep looking Outside to see if the hummingbird is still here.

Wednesday with Words

I went out to work in the garden recently, but my helpers got there first. I did clean up one end of the bed, then thought I’d reclaim the yarrow that had gotten lost in a sea of wildflowers. I ran into the helper at the bottom the page (SPIDER ALERT). 

So, I moved to the other end of the bed–and found a Praying Mantis busily tending that section. I went for my iPhone, snapped their pictures, and called it a day. 

In other backyard news, as I waited to pull out of the driveway today, I saw something in the road–as in something that had gotten run over. It was our wee opossum. 

I drove to Lake Lawson Lake Smith park to walk, and found the gate closed. They’ve been doing some upgrades, and it should be open tomorrow. Since I was out, wearing shoes and camera in tow, I thought I’d go to the botanical garden to walk. Upon checking the down-sized wallet, the card wasn’t with me. So, here I am at home, and will soon spend some time with the treadmill. I hope you have a lovely evening!
