Thursday Gardening!!

Hello! Lautrec here...we have had a TON of rain lately and when we get a lot of rain in the summer, a lot of these pop up in our garden:

(yes, they are edible.)

Something else also loves the rain and damp...and the mushrooms...these:

(Yuck! Yuck!)

Thankfully, this guy (below) and his buddies like to eat the above 'yucks' ... this guy might not eat very many this summer, I'm sure he will in a couple of years!

(He was as big as my thumb!)

Ah, and there are also these fellas that like to eat the 'yucks':

(Isn't he magnificent?! His underside is a fluorescent green!!)

I especially like to uncover nice surprises like frogs and lizards even if I'm not allowed to eat them. They are so cute!!

Have a great gardening day!

Hi Lautrec Sweetie,
Wow, you have lots of crawlies in your garden. I would love to look at all those things. Mama doesn't like the yucks. Yes, that last guy is amazing. Have fun with all the characters!

Those are neat garden creatures! We think we would like to eat Mr. Froggie and Mr. does you Mom stop you? Or are they icky tasting?

Mr. Slug looks pretty, well, sluggy and we would leave him well alone.

Come play in our contest tomorrow!

Mom doesn't like those slimy yuckers eithers. You've got good help to keep them in check! Is there any more room for us? We'd like to come and sniff around in your garden too.

Your lizards are a lot more colorful than the ones that live in my area!

Lautrec what an interesting variety of visitors you have in your garden. I love the lizard but not the sticky.
