Good afternoon everyone! It's a great Saturday for me- I'm off work! Yipeeee! I did do some sweaty yard work this morning- pulling and digging up weeds from my flower beds, but after a nice shower, I'm taking it easy for a little while. My oldest grandsons are visiting this weekend and my husband cooked a fantastic meal, so I'm a clean, fat and happy grandma right now ;)
I hope your weekend is going well. Today I'm sharing a few critters that hang around my back porch-
|Southeastern Five-lined Skink- I used to think these were called Salamanders, but I'm not sure why|
|Cute little frog- not sure of his biological name, just a green frog to me|
|I love tiny frogs!|
|This lizard surely appears to be at peace in his surroundings- zzzzzzzzzzzz|
|An itsy-bitsy spider dangling from the tin roof|
|Closer view of the itsy-bitsy spider- can anyone identify it?|
|A carpenter bee bore a perfect round hole in one of my porch beams.|
I knew nothing about carpenter bees until I saw them drilling holes in my porch beams. During some research, I learned the difference between bumble bees and carpenter bees- most importantly, one will destroy your home while the other one watches. We plan to seal the holes and put a finish on the porch wood soon (we just built the porch about 6 to 7 months ago).
Thank you for visiting!
