Er…Day 2/Day 3? I messed up already. I didn’t get the time to post yesterday. 😦 But the qualifier in parentheses describing the challenge says I’m okay. (No, I didn’t create it…check Day 1…it was already there!)

Here is today’s photo. If you are squeamish, don’t look!

Tomato Hornworm

The weather has grown cool and fall is officially here according to the calendar, so chances are our green tomatoes will probably never turn red. If it were earlier in the season, this guy would have damaged them anyway.

Here are the rules for the “Five Photos Five Stories” challenge: “Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo.

Today I nominate…Pamela!

Jake’s Topic this week is Entrance.

I had a perfect one…but I used it recently for Cee’s Photo Challenge (click here to see it).

One of my favorite places to go is Tower Hill Botanical Gardens. It takes me over an hour to drive there, but I try to go a couple of times a year. If you want to see how beautiful it is…click on my link. They have lovely galleries of the place on their web site.

Here is a photo my husband took of me getting ready to enter my “world of wonder.”

This is how it looked to me…going from the shadow into the light and colors!
