Getting out in the gardens

Still so many pretty flowers at Bok Tower Gardens in November. The big lily pads were still blooming.

I hadn’t seen any frogs there in several years so I was excited to see this guy in a small pond.

Little flying critters.

I’ve taking a ton of pictures of the bell tower but this was the first time I noticed that there was a calendar carved in the back of the tower. I’m not sue what the lines mean. Has anyone seen this before?

There were still lots of caterpillars in mid-November.

Hitching a ride

I brought home some poinsettia plants over Thanksgiving weekend to brighten up the house for holidays.

When I was watering them before placing them in the living room, I noticed these guys on the leaves. They were smaller than by pinky fingernail. I carefully removed them and put them outside on a bush, but not before grabbing my camera and taking pictures of them.

This is my view looking out the kitchen window. Our neighbor’s plant has gotten so big it is over the fence.
