The garden bench

Come on over and sit a spell on my bench surrounded by mint and cosmos.  I love sitting here and pondering life.  It smells heavenly and watching the bees bumble around - those big fuzzy bees, little bees, regular sized bees, even watching a yellow jacket is fun... And when I find a lady bug or an elusive (and weird) baby ladybug, I am delighted.  They are all so fun to watch.  I wish we had praying mantis' here in the Black Hills.  We used to have a lot of these handsome bugs in Sacramento.  At one time, I had three in various parts of the garden that I'd go out everyday and watch.  Until one of them ate the other.  That wasn't very cute.  Alas...
