Eye to Eye with a Dragonfly

Everyone who knows me well, knows, and I mean KNOWS that I don't do spiders, insects, bugs, even ants in many cases! 

Flashback---> I was a freshman in high school and it was a Saturday morning while I was watching cartoons (don't judge me), I noticed a trail of ants from the back patio door leading next to the sofa on which I was relaxing. I jumped up and ran to wake up my younger brother to tell him he had to come get rid of them! I was terrified!

Now, I'm eye to eye with a dragonfly!

Oh Flower

Spring is my favorite time of the year. It just seems that global warming continues to push this bright and breezy season later in the year or dismisses it all together. But, with my first days off work in a while, I was able to spend some time with Mother Nature and grab a few snapshots of Spring's beauty.

I got down in the dirt in my own, newly planted flower bed
