My World Tuesday - I thought it was winter!

It's cold tonight - it really is. There is snow up in the mountains. The branches of some of our garden trees are tapping on the window, asking to come in from the cold. And what do I find?

I find those classic winter animals the Praying Mantis and a Southern Marbled Gecko. The Mantis was outside my front door, laying eggs on the brick work and the Gecko was hiding under a bag next the hall stand. I dont think these things should be happening. It's not the proper time! But here they are, in all their close up glory.

I hope the wildlife in your part of the world is paying proper attention to the seasons and not doing things that are strange and, frankly, untimely.

You can find lots of other good things to see here or by clicking on the My World Tuesday button on the RHS of the screen.

You can also see my most recent post on my other blog (which I have to say is a much better read than this one!) by clicking the Paying Ready Attention button on the RHS of the screen.

I have to admit that I'm always surprised when I hear you have snow on your mountains! :)
