Happy WildLife Wednesday!z00m


My hobby seems to be collecting hobbies and crafts. There's so many things to make and do that I can't focus on one single one for very long at a time. I blog to share my latest craft or thoughts with folks and hopefully get their thoughts and suggestions too.

    1. Thanks Barb
      It’s a first for me too. I was just lucky to see it on my mint and then notice the tiny red eggs. I’m glad my camera picked the eggs up so well. 🙂

  1. I haven’t seen one of those in so long. They loved my mom’s back porch when I was a kid. I don’t remember seeing eggs, but, I may not have known what I was even looking at!

    1. Hi Patti
      I think the eggs are a fun thing to know about. I never thought anything of it when I used to see them. The granddaddy long legs has always been apart of our out door norm to see. 🙂
