So this year has been so different in all areas of our weather~spring brought lots of rain and lasted a long time, summer was late coming, we've had heavier rains than normal for our afternoon showers, fewer Mayflies and this week we've been hit hard by grasshoppers. I don't mind these, in fact I'll take them over Mosquiotos anyday. Sunday afternoon we had heavy rain and hubby went outside and immediately called me-we had grasshoppers all over the side of the house. Since then, they haven't been quite so heavy but there is an abundance of this little insect. Still being new to living on the plains, dear friends, can anyone share any wisdom about why we are getting so many more than we've ever seen before.
Our neighbor simply told us nature is cyclical; I do worry about the farmers though because I remember hearing how insects could wipe out a crop very quickly.
We had a lovely tea party yesterday and I will post photos tomorrow. Have a wonderful day dear friends.
