I have always dreamed about having a wonderful garden! When I was a kid, my parents had a fabulous garden at one of our houses that blossomed every summer with amazing flowers, tons of fruits and veggies. Our blackberry bushes quickly grew into a forest and the giant blackberries were always so scrumptious freshly picked from under the sun.
So, attempting to recreate such a place on my small apartment patio, I have created a small potted garden.
Truthfully, I don't take as good of care of it as I should. Green thumb fail #1.
And Green thumb fail #2....
I can't stand bugs!!
So, while cleaning out some of my dead plants and branches - I came across this giant stink bug! GIANT stink bug! Of course, I verbally accosted him and interrogated him as to why he thought it such a good idea to sneak up on me.
After a couple of neighbors walked by, I decided I needed to calm down. I got back to work... and behold!
There were three more GIANT stink bugs in the plant!
They are kind of hard to see - but there are two more in this picture! They were about 3-inches long and 2-inches across. They walked so slowly and they all stared at me the entire time I worked. I must have scared them though - because I haven't seen them since....
