Chinese Silk Tree

I just got a helpful correction from co-worker Maria Lomoro on the ID for this tree. It's a Chinese silk tree, not a mimosa. They're really quite pretty, by any name!

Marty the Praying Mantis

This is my good buddy, Marty. He goes after all the little nasties that would wreck havoc on my garden. A praying mantis is a verrrry good bug to have around!
