OT - Praying Mantis and garden update

I have seen many Praying Mantis here over the last couple of weeks. Usually large gray-ish colored ones but recently found this green little one on our deck post. Do you find them in your gardens?

A chilly start to the morning here but I love it. My garden is still flourishing with perennial blooms and my slope wall project is still a work in progress. Walls are done, patio done,steps installed but still working on getting the entire slope mulched. Beds along the walls are ready for transplants along with bulb planting. I just got another load of mulch to hopefully complete what I need to get rid of the rest of the grass on the slope.

I ordered raised cedar garden boxes and will start putting them together and load with new top soil which also was just delivered for next years vegetable garden.

Not much downtime for us here. I'll post pics once I get a bit further along. Deer remain a nuisance here. Still spraying every couple of weeks.

That is it for me. Time to get outside and get to work.
