Hello Again

Hello again to our faithful followers.

We are currently going through the second annual hot season and frankly it's hot, and dry. When we walk there are swarms of grasshoppers that take flight with each step.

The other day we were working in our garden and placing Neem leaves around budding plants to keep the bugs from eating everything. Seems the Neem leaves have properties that bugs do not like.

While working in the garden Grace called me over because she had found something. It was a very large beautiful green, chamelion. He blended in well with the okra plants. I don't know how large they get but this one was at least a foot long from nose to tip of the tail. Kind of weird the way the eyes move in different directions.

Below are some pictures of the recent snake incident. I did not know we had spitting cobras here but I was told this was one. It was 6 to 7 feet in length. Needless to say it caused quite a stir.
