Sitting with mums

I sat with some of the mums this morning.

My October 2nd daytime activity.

Tonight I will turn the outside lights on.

Mornings are cool and afternoons warm;
perfect October days.

Garden tomato sandwiches for supper.

Garden tomatoes are soooooo good. I like to put cheese inside too!
Lovely fall colours.

All lovely, and well done, but that second one - wow!

The colors in these photos are so vibrant. I'll bet all the little beings are reluctant to leave your beautiful sanctuary. Thanks for showing us their world.
Garden-fresh tomatoes; so yummy!
Have a great week.

Dear Wendy,
We like cheese on our tomato sandwiches too. I sometimes will use hummus as a spread on our toasted bread and I add fresh spinach...I am getting hungry.

Dear Lisa,
Thank you.
I love mums in October. Seeing bugs enjoying them is extra nice.

Dear Shellmo,
Thank you.
I have pots of mums on my porch, deck and in my house. Plus lots of mums in the gardens. I like mums.

Dear Marmee,
Oh, thank you!
I have so much fun taking the pictures and sharing them.

Dear Wren,
The bugs are fun!
Glad you love them too.

Dear Vikki,
I think the weather has been so warm this month the bugs are wondering what is going on!
It is hard for me to say goodbye. I hope they stick around until November.
Thank you for your kind support.

Dear Meggie,
Thank you.
I liked the buckeye on the yellow mum too.

Great pictures! Number two is a very special snapshot. Eye to eye with...? Was it a sort of grasshopper you took the picture of??

Q said...

Dear Barbara,
Thank you!
That second picture is of a Praying Mantis.
I have lots of them this year in the gardens. I think they are amazing bugs.
