Ugh!  A Bug!

Not really, actually.  We bought some Praying Mantis egg sacs offline a few months ago and have been waiting for the weather to warm up enough for the dormant eggs to hatch.  

Our porch is now hopping with baby manti!  They are so much fun to watch.

Last season our garden was overrun with aphids, so we are hoping that these little guys will snack on them and help us out in the process.



Here you can see how tiny they still are in proportion to Mike's hands.  Grow little buggies, grow!



I randomly snapped this picture of Ms. Mollie on the porch, and I LOVE it!

Miss Mollie sure is a pretty dog!
