Bugs!!!!!! and the Garden
Have veggies, have tomato bugs,,, ugh... I spent a long time trying to find this guy. I could tell he was enjoying my favorite tomato plant, because he was starting to eat not only the leaves but my tomatoes...
This morning I searched for the tomato "bug" and could not find him.. I had spray on the plants now, so where is he... Ah, look carefully,, it is a grasshopper... Isn't the insect world amazing, he is hardly noticeable.. Just did not have the heart to knock him off, hate jumpy bugs or toooo big!
I am a mixed media fiber/quilt artist who loves to work with gourds,and jewelry. I am easily distracted with the next project, and have many going at one time. I have been teaching Fabric Dyeing and Beginning gourd art for many years. I am blessed with my own home studio. We live in the rolling hills near Yosemite National Park, in central Calif. U.S.A. This is a place of Inspiration, Blue Skies and Great Friends. I volunteer with several organizations,and have memberships in P.E.O., Coarsegold Historical So., Sierra Art Trails, Madera Circle Gallery, Yosemite Western Artist, Timberline Gallery and Sierra Mountain Quilters. I teach at my home studio and at local quilt gatherings.
