      We’re blessed they are only tiny. I’d hate to see aliens like this human-sized! 🙂 I’ve been working on collage art and poetry most of the day. Your Sunday Six is on my to-listen list!

      Thank you, Mark. As I was looking under the umbrella leaves and saw the baby zucchini, a cicada, the first of the season, started singing. Nature is ever a source of delight, and I think you would agree 🙂

    I definitely agree that nature is a continuous source of delight and amazement. In fact, I noticed the most amazing metallic red insect today. Every day there is something new to see.

      Wow! Metallic red! I watched a video on fb today where a woman freed a ladybug that was doomed to be a slave/meal for a wasp larvae. That was truly amazing to me that she saved that little critter.

    I remember seeing cicada shells everywhere at one time.

      I rarely see them, mostly hear them. I wouldn’t want to get swarmed but I hear this is a year for the 17 year ones and Ann Arbor got quite a few.

        We get them once in a blue moon. Those shells are creepy because they are everywhere.
        No I would not want to get swarmed.

      Yes they do. Jeanette thought this would be a good pic to try mosaic on. I think she’s right.

      Thanks, Dave. I thought it was neat to see the new zucchini and hear them for the first time at the same time.

    Please forgive my denseness. It’s a cicada….but there’s no zucchini, right? It’s just ’cause of the green color……..?
    I read everyone’s comments and your responses and I’m still at a loss !!!
    (although the poem is clear and sweet) 🙂

      The zucchini is mentioned but the cicada is mentioned and pictured, which is kind of ironic as I saw the zucchini but didn’t see the cicada. Now are you completely confused 😉

    Hahaha. No, good, I thought I was going blind or crazy. But it’s just my usual pointless over-thinking everything. Obvious things! Thanks, Li, lololol

      Cool! lol. You’re right, over-thinking is over-rated.
