I feel rather busy, yet I can’t help but let the little things catch my eye.

Renegade Cicada

I read in the news a couple of months ago about the cicadas that were coming to the east coast for the summer. I hoped that I would end up in the area at the right time to see the little buggers, and it just so happened that Rails Girls DC coincided. Well they didn’t visit DC, and we didn’t see them when we moved on to Asheville NC either. I had lost hope. I love the sounds they make, it reminds me of so many different times in my life.

I walked around the side of the house this morning to get the hose and there it was. Hanging off the back of my fella’s motorcycle cover was a cicada shell. We aren’t due for cicadas here in Nashville for some time, so I think he may have traveled to see me.

Flowers and Mosquitoes

I have been a very busy lady lately. Among many other things I have been preparing for a little vacation time. Vacation actually begins with the Rails Girls workshop in Washington DC next Thursday. Since I will be traveling 11 hours from home in the middle of the week I went ahead and took Friday off of work so we can scoot on down to some ocean before visiting Asheville NC and heading home Sunday. I don’t really like to sit still for too long you can see.

The spring has been long as the summer is taking longer than usual to arrive here in Nashville. My plants are absolutely loving it. The Asiatic Lillies are twice the size that they were last year, and they were too gorgeous to keep to myself.

While trying to keep the mosquitoes away I accidentally singed the Yucca flowers with a tiki torch flame. The outcome was the prettiest gray little flowers with black singed edges.
