I, Dragonfly

I had my annual recheck for Cushing’s Disease today.  I don’t dwell on it, but it is a relief to know I’m okay.  At least if it comes again I will get it taken care of right away instead of being misdiagnosed for nine years.  :^(  I guess it was a case of better late than never.  The dragonflies will keep me smiling.  Always.  My symbol of new beginnings.

Dragonfly, Skink, and Frog – Oh My!

Prince Charming came back.  I had missed him.   It’s raining again today, so he is probably content.  The dragonflies won’t like it though.

Hi there!

I love dragonflies.  Squash bugs – not so much.  I had beautiful, healthy squash plants; now I don’t.  My cucumber plants have all succumbed to the juggernaut of hungry squash bugs.  Now they are lurking on my tomatoes.  I would like to say there is Sevin dust in their future, but I won’t use pesticides.  They don’t know how lucky they are.  :^(

I wish dragonflies ate squash bugs.

Dragonfly Wings

I love this blue.  It reminds me of the Midnight Blue Crayola crayon in the 64 box.  I don’t think they make that color anymore.  Odd the things we remember from childhood.

You can almost see the fairy riding on the dragonfly.
