I always feel like, somebody's watching me!

You just never know what you are going to find in the garden. The other day I was checking out my Rudbeckia maximas to see if they were budding. It took a minute but I discovered two sets of eyes looking back at me.Aren't these little guys cute? There had been 3 but one jumped before I snapped his pic.Remember these guys? I think they knew I was checking them out. This picture is now about 5 days ago so they have probably changed a lot more now.No, I know they don't have eyes but I was definitely checking them out. This is the first time I have grown amaryllis. I'm very happy with the results.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. I'm off for another race Saturday morning.

Very good pictures - I love that amaryllis! Best wishes with the race. I hope you have a perfect day for running. It's been a little cooler here the last few days.

From the green leaf critters, to the new nesters, to the trumpet swan flowers, it's all life, new and ever-lasting life, which is what Jesus came to talk about.

Hi Susie, Yes---our critters and our flowers do look at us!!!! They count on us for food, water, etc. Of course, we certainly do our share of looking at them, don't we?????

Your bluebirds are farther along than mine. Mine are just a couple of days old. I'll post a picture tomorrow.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wouldn't I love to discover eyes like that! They look so adorable! I recently put in some amaryllis bulbs too. Yours is stunning.

Good luck with the race.

Those little guys are cute. I wish we had little visitors like that here.
The baby birds are so cute. I can't remember what kind you said they were.

You did a great job of capturing the 'critters' in that first photo. I've never tried to grow amaryllis, but yours are certainly beautiful. Good luck in the race tomorrow.

I'm not sure I would have seen those little guys, which is probably a good thing.
Nice pics! Good luck Saturday!

Hi Susie, those little guys are probably wondering if you are a frog/bird eating monster;) Love your photos.

Love the blooms in your garden. Those cute little guys look so cozy. Their hair is starting to come in. How delightful that you get to watch them grow.

Glad those eyes were from a cute little creature. We've been getting some unfriendly ones around here! :0

Rose said...

What cute little frogs! I think most creatures keep an eye on me around here--as soon as they see me come near with a camera, they fly or scurry away:)

Good luck in your race tomorrow!

Jacquie said...

Those are some fun garden discoveries.

Good luck on your race... I'm counting on another medal!

Lanny said...

I can see where one might get a paranoid feeling from the amarillis, I think you should send it to me so you won't be stalked by it anymore!

Daisy said...

Very fun post, Susie! I especially love the little frogs---so cute! And so cool that you even saw them. Makes you wonder what else is keeping an eye on you that you don't see! :D

perennialgardener said...
