It is important to always pay attention when you are in the garden.
Because you just never know who you are going to meet, especially when you are down on your hands and knees focusing on your task at hand (in my case weeding).
This guy had himself nicely nestled in the rocks that surround our AC units. He was enjoying the coolness of the soil and warmness of the rocks when we came eye to eye. I think he winked at me. I am sure it was code for move on and leave me alone.
Of course I had to run in and grab my camera. I wasn't going to let an opportunity to capture this guy get away.
All my pointing and clicking really got on his nerves after a time. And he decided to get up and hop off. Of course not before I could get a few more shots in.
And let me tell you he wasn't all too happy about it either. Look at that scowl.
So to cheer him up I mentioned that there are some toadshade trillium in the woodland garden that he should check out and maybe get some dinner to go. Another wink (code for thank you) and he was off. I think we will be good friends.
