He Doesn't Eat Much.

The pups found this cute grasshopper in our new blooms.  Rocket checks the blooms daily.  Lucky for this little guy Rocket decided not to eat him. lol  And since the grasshopper doesn't seem to eat too much,  we decided he could stay. :)

We've been getting quite a bit of rain and it has been feeling like fall here.  I've actually turned off the air again!  How is your weather treating you?

OMCs what a cute little critter living in your yard? He blends in nicely with the pretty plant.

We are so glad you are settling in and enjoying the weather..minus all the dag gone rain. It pour buckets here last night. Thank goodness it didn't rain like that last Tuesday it would have ruined our driveway
Hugs madi your bfff

Bet the weather is a far cry from what you've been used to! I'm ready for a reprieve from the heat and look forward to some cooler weather.

I like how the dog checks out the plants :) That grasshopper does blend in very well! We sure could use the rain everyone on the East is getting. We are having sunny a bit muggy but not too hot of weather; more muggy than we are used to having.

Aw, he is a cute little fellow. I'm glad Rocket decided not to eat him.

We finally got a break from our triple digit temps. It has been raining a little and a bit cooler. But back to the mid 90s next week. Fortunately our humidity stays low.

I'm 94.6% sure that's a katydid! I love those.

That is the skinniest legged grasshopper I have ever seen. Looks like a cross between a grasshopper and a praying mantis LOL Fall is in the air here too.

We had a whole lotta rain last week and then some cooler weather, but the humidity seems to be rising along with the temps, so darn it... no autumn yet. BUT SOON!

Cute little grasshopper, Marie.... We have had an unusually cool summer this year --but ours has been VERY dry... Leaves are beginning to dry up and fall ---so there's definitely some Fall in the air here.

Hugs,
Betsy
