Don't laugh...it's true.
They either poke me in the eye, or grab my hair. Then, there are spiders and birds, who try to make nests in them, so I don't often put one on the door until Fall.
This is the door wreath I made for this Fall, and hung on the door Friday.
It looks innocent enough, doesn't it?
Now, cue the scary movie music...Whaaa! Haaaa! Haaaa!
I went in to get my camera, and 20 seconds later, when I came back out...the grandaddy of all Praying Mantises was on the door, eyeing my wreath.
OK. I'm outta here! I'm headed around to the back door. But first, let me show you the new plants in the urns.
Not exactly Fall colors, but they work with the ones in the yard.
I'm amazed at how the plants have grown just in a few days...
...I took these photos today...
The Praying Mantis is still on the door...five days and counting!
Hubby thinks it's neat, and is trying to think of a name for it...
My fear of door wreaths continues. :)
