Seems like I’ve been happening upon a lot of lovey-dovey going on lately. Last week I noticed these guys on the ground cherry volunteers out front (I knew something had been eating the leaves!):
And then the other day I saw these box elder bugs on the front door:
Eww! But, go bugs, I guess.
Now that spring is finally arriving, insects are arriving, too. I saw my first bug of the season splat on my windshield earlier this week, and last weekend I saw the first bee in the back yard.

As I’ve been doing spring cleanup in the gardens, I’ve noticed that the bugs are starting to come back! It’s so good to see the creepy-crawlies and flying things re-emerge. Here are some bug-related goodies to celebrate the season.
