I found this little meme at Christie's blog handcramp crafts.
The monkeys are being boring and it is hot so I don't want to take garden pictures or go find something garden related to blog about. Since life is not to interesting, I think today is a good day to play.

VP over at Veg Plotting shared a tour of her garden whimsies today. Yesterday there was an adorable picture of a snail.
She inspired me to share another picture of Senor Werm. Someday someone will teach me how to use this keyboard and I will be able to make the little squiggle over the n. Anyway, we want to see your garden whimsies. That's right, we want pictures of funny little statues or art pieces you keep in the garden. Leave me a comment and I will link your post. If no one plays, I will have to lurk and link. Don't make me lurk.
Cinj has a cute gazing ball holding frog over at Cinj's chat room.
Anna has a bunny planter over at Woody and Herbaceous. Well, on second look, she pretty much has bunnys everywhere.
Brenda at the Brenda Blog has a whole bunch of cute garden art. I particularly like the beetle
While it is not silly or garden art, Momo Falis has beautiful pictures of Hocking Hills and some cool pathways. It's my blog and I will link what I want to.
Crafty Gardener went all out for this challenge over at The Gardener Side. There is even a slide show. Check it out.
Karen over at Artist's Garden has a cartoon that made me smile.
Karen at Home Free, has dressed up some rocks in some very cute knitwear.
Tina at in the garden has bowling balls
The Lurking List
Weed Wackin Wenches have a darling picture of Diva Dog
Joy at Gardenjoy4me has a darling bunch of bench warmers
Look what Middle Monkey found in the front yard this morning. Excuse the blurry picture. That sucker was fast.
We do not spray for bugs in our garden. We like to let nature take care of everything whenever possible. I am always on the lookout for beneficial insects. Lady bugs and their weird looking offspring do a great job on aphids. Assassin bugs look pretty scary and eat anything they can get their proboscis into.
Our favorite killer bugs are praying mantids. All praying mantis are praying mantids, but not all praying mantis are praying mantids. It's a species thing. Anyway, these creatures will eat anything even each other. A baby mantid's first meal may be his brother. I feel very sorry for the male mantids. If they don't make the jump to the females back just perfectly for mating, they are dinner. Even if they do, she is still going to eat his head during the act and then the rest of him after she gets the needed genetic material. Just thought you should know.
I have a compost update. The pile stayed over 140 degrees for four days. Today it started dropping and currently is at 135. It still a hot pile. When it drops below 130 it will be considered active. Once it cools off to the 80's it is ready to turn and start the whole process over again. We have compost success and I am very happy.
