Back from surgery

Well, I came back from the hospital on Friday. The last days are just a blur. Bill has been so good to can and pick the garden. He has canned green and wax beans and tomatoes. The tomatoes are finally starting to really turn red.
Today I was putzing in the yard and saw what looked like a black shiny mud dauber attack a big katydid. I am used to seeing the big cicada killers around, but not this insect. He crawled up the fence with his catch and flew off. I figured he needed the height to get going. We have quite a few of these mud dauber looking bugs around. They swarm the ground around our Green Ash tree at various times of the day.
The weather is nice and cool again. Low 50's for tonight and low 80's tomorrow. I love it!
