English Pyrex Birthday!

Bug is the wild Pyrex hunter! He found a set of Pyrex made in England for my b-day! I'm going to have to find another cabinet!

Mr. Writing Spider and Other Garden Musings

A sure sign fall is around the corner is the appearance of the rather large Writing Spider. They are large, black and yellow, and I find them impressive.
I'm not a big spider fan, but I can appreciate this dude living outside our window.
He's about 3 inches across counting the legs.
I bet the girls would like to make a snack out of him. Our chicken named Red made a snack out of a small frog she found. It was kind of disturbing.

Check out the butterfly on the zinnia. It was having a nice day until I started taking pictures.
His highness the cat is jealous of all this picture taking.
We are hoping the Archway to our asparagus bed will make it another winter. My Bug made this for me a few years ago. It's all tied together with wire, and was one of his first creative wood projects. He's a very talented guy-even though he doesn't listen to any compliments.

Teardrop Pyrex Mixing Bowls

I couldn't believe Bug found these at the GW for $4. I am ashamed to say I'd never seen them before!
