One of the cool things about buying our first home out of state is that we are learning lots about the flora (above thingie) and fauna (fire ants?) in this particular locale. I took this picture after doing some yard work, just sitting on the yard for a moment. We'll eventually tear out the overgrown flowerbed where this thing lives; it's only pretty for a week or so then turns brown and hard and its base is a sprawling mess. Still, I wanted to preserve its beautiful, fleeting moment.
