Ever since I discovered the praying mantis last year, I've been hoping that my garden would have more. Well this morning, I found one! He/she is not very big, a little more than an inch. Last year's was on the east side of my house and hung out on the Russian Sage. This one is in the backyard under my kitchen window on my hydrangea. This afternoon it was gone but I am keeping my eye open and hoping I discover more. Wishing you great discovery and a fabulous 4th of July!
