Today, at our new home, we discovered . . .

Giant Grasshoppers!



Yes, these babies were 5 and 6 inches long! There were lots of them, flying about and eating the leaves of the trees. Interestingly, they came in a variety of colors. This orange one was especially photogenic, but there were also copper-brown grasshoppers, and yellow, and green. They were quite lovely, really . . . if you like giant grasshoppers.

Great to have you here, Bill!

Sorry, Heidi. I meant the home we are creating, out on the property. We are still looking for the interim rental house. Hopefully we'll find something soon! I'll keep you updated.
