Grasshopper's Lunch

As I so often say, we have to look for the beauty around us.  There are gifts everywhere, but most of the time they are so subtle we miss them.   After a morning of errands and lunch with Rick, I stepped out the back door to enjoy nature.  I glanced down at probably the last blooms on many of my plants and low and behold, there was Grasshopper.  He was having lunch on a lovely pink blossom.  He even posed for me as I took his picture.

Enjoy the rest of your week.  Look for the beauty around you and spread some kindness.


  1. What a gentle heart you have to look at a grasshopper like that, especially when it's eating the last of your pretty blooms.

    I've never looked at them in this way. I've always seen them as a nuisance insect that when they swarm can destroy whole fields of grain and other plants. In warmer countries they can cause famine by destroying crops. I remember one year there were so many hopping around in the grass.

    Hugs, Julia

  2. Sly fellow...hard to see him if you don't take the time to really look!
