My thoughts exactly when Sares said she thought the pictures looked like a very stylish praying mantis. However, Paint Girl was right. Remember these glorious pink Rhodie blooms I photographed for Pink Saturday? The following weekend, they were beginning to be just a memory.
I thought the resulting "dead heads" were pretty neat. Like long-legged botanical spiders.
This is the new growth on the Rhodie.
This is the mess of pink blooms.
I have a thing for beautiful messes, don't I?
