Nature Friday

We are joining Rosy this week for Nature Friday~

Mom took me out the garage door that leads into our back yard late one afternoon and look what we discovered.  We hurried past because he looked like he was going to jump on us!
 Can you see those praying mantis eyes?  They are so creepy and they rotate!
 Our Wild Cherry tree in our small woods has berries.  
 And our Holly berries keep getting more and more red!
 We found a cute mushroom in our yard.
 Ooops - poor Sunflower~
 It's getting to be the time of year when stuffs attaches itself to my furs if I drag my face through the vegetation along the side of the road~

Mom treated herself to a handblown glass pumpkin.   She's a pumpkin NUT and she just loves it!
Happy Friday, everybuddy!
Love ya lots♥

We love mantis...anything that kills bugs is a friend of ours. Looks like the flowers are winding down for the year, but soon there will be crunchy leaves to get in your furs to bring home.

As science geeks, everyone in my family would love to see a preying mantis! We would have invited it in for a photo session!

I think praying mantis are really cool but I wouldn't want one to land on me. Pierre always brings stuff in on his fur.

Millie and Walter said...

You found some cool nature to show us. That bug sure does look creepy. We love your glass pumpkin too.

We'd avoid that creepy looking thing too! :) Many of my sunflowers are falling over, so I keep cutting them and bringing some in the house.
I love pumpkins too, and that glass one sure is pretty!

We love your Autumn walk and all those Autumn flowers, berries. The praying mantis is just amazing but I think we would have moved on fast too.

Treacle comes in with those exact seeds in her beard and also the sticky balls from another plant. They are fun to get out not!

We love the glass pumpkin I bet it looks great with the sun shining through it.

Hugs, Susie & Treacle xx
