Flower Trauma

Saturday I spent the whole day rearranging my mom’s front flower bed.  By the time I finished, I’d moved maybe 1/3-1/2 of the plants and they were all droopy. I traumatized them so bad I still don’t think they’ve recovered all the way.  😛 I made fun of them by standing in the middle and crying, “Traumaaaaaaaaaa!” and also telling them to straighten up and quit being such pansies.

I also handled a centipede, large black beetle, and a honey bee with a broken wing.  It was my first time with a bee.  She was so focused on trying to fix her torn wing she didn’t seem to notice my fingers above her.  She crawled onto my gloved hand, then later crawled up my arm, which made me nervous (it gave me goosebumps on my legs), so I scooped her onto my naked hand before putting her back on my glove.  Then I put her back where I found her when I had to leave.

Exciting times this weekend.

And I’m making a new version of my rice bag dragon.  This time from a pattern I made.  We’ll see how they work out!
