The Bats are BACK! Along with some flowers and frogs..

The last couple of days have been well into the 70's! And three days ago the bats were out and checking out our boxes. It was very exciting! If you have been following this blog for over a year, then you know that I have put up several bat houses around our yard as well as our neighbors on both sides. I was a little disappointed when the bats chose my neighbors box over mine half way through the summer of last year. But that is still close enough for them to be effective against the bugs that linger in our yards. Well a couple of bats were inspecting both our boxes and for a small time, rested in mine for the night! It was only temporary as they eventually moved back into his later the next day. As for today. It has been raining all day and its a good day to stain inside where it is warm and dry. The frogs are out, which inspired me for my next origami project. The frog still needs work, but I think I can make it look better. As for the flowers. The spring flowers are on track, and with all the Easter candy out there, I have been experimenting with small roses made out of Hersey mini wrappers. I need more colors to make the flowers stand out, but Cheryl likes them. Perhaps I'll have enough to make a small bouquet. Enjoy your weekend everyone!

We do have lots of bats that like to fly in the evening. They use to come into the house but haven't done so for years.
