Things are Not Always what they Seem

Look closely at the dark spot near the hose container on the left side. It sort of looks like a flower head on my screen. But look again...................

It's no flower!

Yes, it's a BAT!!! Just hanging out for the day near my front porch. Needless to say that hose container is still sitting there. We were not about to disturb this guy's sleep.

Yesterday we found some of the stone pavers we need to complete another pathway through the Arbor Gardens. Last fall we started one and then ran out of these.

We were very happy to find a dozen more. Hopefully it will be nice this week so I can start digging.

I have nothing new blooming. In fact I only went outside this weekend to look at the bat. It was cold again. We had a light frost both nights. I did check my cannas and they look OK. I think they were saved because I still have them all lined up around the house, which probably protected them.


  1. eeekkkk a bat.....sorry your weather is no co-operating Zoe...

  2. I would say that there is something wrong with the bat if it is right outside like that. Be careful! I sure hope this is your last frost! Jean

  3. Cute little bat. He/she must have had a rough night and couldn't make it home.

  4. Wow, what an interesting visitor!

  5. We have bats in our bat house, so tell the young fella to come on over - there's plenty of room!

  6. Be careful - bats are the largest carriers of rabies in the United States.
