A week ago, in the afternoon, we were besieged with some kind of flying beetle. At first we thought they were Ladybugs, then realized they were not the usual kind of Ladybug. Perhaps they were the kind that has been called "Asian Ladybugs." However, upon reading a favorite columnist's article in the local newspaper this morning, I have decided they were Kudzu Beetles! They seemed to like the eastern side of our house, congregating on the white siding. As our weather turned a bit cooler, they seem to have found somewhere else to go; however, I read that they will reappear during the winter whenever the days become warmer. As we live in a climate that has mild winters, I expect we will have something else joining the stink bugs in thinking they have an engraved invitation to join us in the house!
Last Thursday, prior to a predicted storm of wind and rain, I took this picture of a tree in a neighboring yard.
|Just in case the wind blew off all the leaves.|
Here are two images from this morning.
Are you thinking about Thanksgiving? Are there special recipes that you rely on in these weeks before that special day? I have a couple to share with you in the next post. Until then, have a good day!
Thank you for reading. I really appreciate your comments.
