@jadojado29 - Good morning Suzie! They're very small and masters of camouflage, being ambush predators! They usually hang out on white or yellow blooms as they blend in better! The wind seems to be dying down here and hopefully it won't come back! 😀

Good evening everyone! The frost didn't give at all today but my #gaillardia still refused to give up and stop flowering! Didn't get anything done in the garden today as everything remained frozen! Hopefully it'll be a bit warmer tomorrow! 😀

@angiecrazycatlady - I'm fed up with being cooped up inside after a fortnight of illness! I'm raring to get out there and put the garden to bed for the winter! The gaillardias have been my star performers this year! 😀
