The little war beetle does look quite handsome. I don't normally like bugs. :)

Beautiful lily.

Gosh. I remember reading that blog post at the time. 12 years ago!

I just wanna cry.

Those lilies have an awful pollen, although they are often used in florist arrangements. I throw them out immediately.

I'll insist that they stay outside. :-)

I think I know how you feel, Louise.

Re that linked Dreher post, I do wish he'd used the term "barbarian" to refer only to "the sort that repudiates our civilization, even as he benefits from it," and not also used it to describe folks migrating out of Africa.

Agreed. He explains what he means but it's still s poor choice of words.
