Lucky New Year

With the holidays behind us (except for the Super Bowl, which is a holiday at our house) it is nice to get back to the garden and blogging. I have been very busy with company and travel and have gone nearly three weeks without so much as a walk around the garden. Although I didn't get out much last month, nature found a way to come inside and find me in the way of this charming praying mantis. It was on a cardboard box I was bringing in from the garage in which to ship ship presents. It is the first time I have ever seen one! Last year I read a novel and there was a reoccurring theme of praying mantis bringing luck. I can't remember the book, but I'm looking forward to the luck!
