A visitor to my garden this past weekend...

green beetle

The light was pretty harsh when I took this photo so it doesn't quite capture how electrically green he was. But the metallicness of it shows up pretty well.

That may be the last sun we see for a while since they're predicting rain (and possibly snow!) all week. I'm glad I got the chance to get some work done outdoors. The strawberry patch and herb gardens are weeded and I'm making good progress on edging the shade bed along our stone wall. There's just sooooo much more to do.

Amazing little creatures, aren't they! Such a beautiful color!
You're way ahead of me on the gardening. I just started to clean out the perennial beds and then a cold snap moved in.
