As I sit to write this blog post, I'm realizing that I smell of dill. LOL. I was cutting stalks of dill that had dried in my garden and laying them in areas I'd like it to seed for next year. Good thing I like the smell of dill.
As I was heading out the back door with a bucket of water from our bathtub today, I found this fellow on the steps. A wheel bug! Honestly, this is the first wheel bug I've ever seen in my garden. I understand that they can deliver a painful bite so I didn't touch him, but I got some nice close up photos. Eventually, he moved out of my path so I didn't have to step over him too many times.
A front came through yesterday bringing us cooler weather. We had been up near 100 degrees Fahrenheit last week and through the weekend, but today it is only around 80 degrees.
