I know It's been awhile since I last posted. I've been super busy creating. I got asked to sell some of my primitives in a Art Gallery!! I wasn't to sure about doing it at first, but the owner and my daughter talked me into it. I don't know if you would consider my stuff art worthy. So that's where I have been. I've also been working on some new Santa items too! I hope to have some pics of those things posted on here tomorrow night.
So today was fall cleanup day in our yard. Hubby raked and mowed the yard while I dumped all my clay flower pots and put them away in our shed for the winter. This is always a back breaking activity for me. Just glad it's done for another year. When I was working in the yard, I noticed a beautiful butterfly on my chrysanthemum. I thought the butterflies had all gone south or died since we've had some really cold temps the last couple of days. It got down into the upper 20's the other night. I checked on the Internet and found out this butterfly is called a Common Buckeye. I was on the look out for butterflies all summer and it took me till fall to finally capture one on my camera! Isn't he gorgeous with those spots!! This really made my day!
Then on the same mum was this little guy. Not sure what it is. It almost looks to me like a butterfly that just came out of its cocoon. See how his wings are still kind of crumbled up. His body looks like it could be a butterfly. Are butterflies still coming out of their cocoons this late?? He can't be a moth because they have those fuzzy antennas, right?
I have a bunch of different colored mums and these two guys like my daisy like mums the best. Probably because they have those yellow centers where they can get something good to eat. LOL
OK time to go relax and get my feet up and do some hand stitching! Everyone have a safe Happy Halloween tomorrow!!! Oh almost forgot. I need to cut out my pumpkins tonight! I guess I can't relax just yet.
