Yay!  It’s Garden Day!!

The other day we had a couple of interesting visitors in our garden.

 C’mon!!  I’ll show you!!

This beautiful butterfly came to visit.
We think it might be a Black or Spicebush Swallowtail!


 Look at that wingspan!!

 And check out this strange guy!
Can you see him there?

This is a Walking Stick bug!


 Mom thought it really was a stick until she saw it move!
He’s kinda weird looking
but we think he woulda been fun to play with!!

 Wanna see what’s going on in some of the other kitties’ gardens??
