Critter Connection: Incy Wincy Style

I was excited to meet up with a few old friends in the gardens!

Spring is definitely here!

This little friend was just waking up!

I understand that many do not hold a passion for spiders.  Trust me, I never did until a few years ago.  Something magical happened, when I took the time to really examine them, behind the lens.  They are so intricate and fascinating to observe.  Next time you have a shoe in hand, ready to squish that 8 legged garden friend, stop for just a moment and remember that we all have a special place here on Mother Earth…spiders included.

I believe I can safely say that Spring has sprung in west Michigan! The high for today is a beautiful 70 degrees.  WOO-HOO!  I can’t think of a better way to celebrate Spring…butterflies.  Although they are not awake outside yet, they are still flying about at our local botanical garden.  After the snow last week, I found myself pulled to the tropical room, for another visit with my fluttering friends…

I have been on a very serious hunt for Spring!  It is April, right?  Yet, we had an ice storm this weekend and the kids have a snow day today!  A snow day…in April!  Are you kidding me?!  I did notice this adorable lady bird, crawling around on my rosemary plants.  At least the critters are waking up and finding their way inside!  (Insert eye roll!)
