Garden Tour Thursday


MARLEY:  Oh boy, I get ta do the garden tour this week!   And this week, it WILDLIFE!!!

First is my favrit.  Its an ant lion pit.  The ant lion hides in the bottom and waits fer an ant to fall over the edge.  And when it cant climb out, the ant lion GRABS it an pulls it unner the dirt!  Is that COOL or what?
This neat guy hovers like a hummerbird, looks like a bee, but its a moth.
We dont know what this is, but its big and looks fierce...
Speaking of fierce, this snakie is getting warm on the storm drain grate an waitin fer a frog to come along.  Its small but I wouldnt get TOO close.
We got 3 goldfishies in the pond ta prettify it.  Theyve been in there since Ayla moved here.  And NO, we dont eat the decorations!
And finally, we have frogs in the pond.  They make funny noises , especially when snakie grabs them...  But theres always more frogs.
Ayla is wavin an saying our snacks are up on the deck.  We have crumbled meatloaf!  And chicken kibble for those more tradionally oriented...  Olus Ayla has made Meowgaritas and there is Nip leafs fer appetizers.

Thank you so much fer coming ta visit...

We've never heard of an ant lion pit. Sounds scary.

Marley as you have not devoured those fish? You are very well-behaved. We love the ride, but our man was afraid of the snake hehe.

What a wonderful garden tour. you certainly do have a pretty and interesting garden. And the best part is your own gold fish pond!

That ant lion is a smart one, kinda vishus, but smart! We had a from in the moist spot under the faucet this summer.
Our neighbors have a fish pond but can't keep anything in it fish-wise. The racoons think its a free fast food place.

We never heard of an ant lion before. They are very cunning to build a trap. Mum has always said she would like a pond with fish in, but she is sure they wouldn't last very long. Can't think what she means!

Now that's what we call a garden stroll!

Is it okay if I eat some of the bugs? It looks like there are tasty ones out there!

BTW, it's a little hard to tell from the photograph, but it looks like Mr. Snake is shedding... which makes these guys a little cranky!

Ant Lion pit? That is a new one for us. I think we would be fishing for the fishies.

Your ants are lions and your moths are birds ? We couldn't read more after that as we were wondering what size everything else was. It looks scary!!!! You guys are so brave in that land of oversized critters.
