It's nearly 100 degrees this weekend, and dry as a bone, so not much gardening is taking place. I did get to spend a few minutes watering and breathing in the fresh air this evening. Watering one of the apple trees we planted for Earth Day, I found this incredibly creepy bug. Ew! Please don't tell me I should kill it because I really don't want to touch it!

I also spotted this robin hunting for worms. Where was it headed?

Cuuuute! Sleepy baby robins!

A little more awake now:

Isn't the sticks, straw and mud nest impressive?

And finally, the butterfly bush just started blooming, so I'm on the lookout for butterflies!

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
