Halloween Hoots

My daughter made us some Owl cupcakes the other night. They are almost too cute to eat- but we are getting over that. They are delicious!

She made the chocolate cupcakes from scratch but all you need are:

Enough frosted cupcakes to make everybody happy
Oreos
fall colored M&M's

Just split your Oreos, place two on cupcakes, add M&M's in the right places and cut the left over top part of the Oreo in two and place as eyebrows.
Easy Peasy!

Puffy Humming Birds

Our Morning temps have been dipping into the 40's all month. The poor little humming birds are puffed up trying to stay warm and staying close to the feeders. This little girl stayed at the feeder all morning.
I have an itch...
waiting for a turn at the feeder

still waiting...

Froggy Hibiscus



A Grey Green tree frog on a freshly opened hibiscus flower, sat still long enough for me to snap about a dozen pictures. It had just finished raining- couldn't have asked for a more perfect photo opportunity!

Amour de Carotte

 This is what happens when you don't thin your carrot seedlings.

Finally get to see a Luna Moth

Luna Moth (Actias luna)
 I've seen them in pictures and documentaries on TV, but have never seen one in real life until now.
Almost the size of my hand (of course I forgot to put my hand next to it for comparison!) and is truly a beautiful pale green. It's is also fuzzy.
This one is hanging on my front storm door. Too bad it didn't pick something nicer looking for this picture like a flower or a shrub, but I think if I tried to move it, I would've lost my photo opportunity. 
Curious, I did a little research and found that after hatching from the cocoon, it doesn't eat, having no mouth parts and lives only a week, long enough to mate and lay eggs.  

The Luna Moth is one of the largest moths in North America

Bird's Sunflower


Sometimes the prettiest flowers are not the ones you've sown.
