Last week I got in my car and realized that a grasshopper was sitting on the front windshield. Not wanting to disturb it, I backed out of the driveway thinking he (or she) would jump off and find a new resting place. Much to my surprise I drove several miles with the grasshopper clinging to the glass for dear life. It was quite comical to see his (or her) little antennas blowing in the wind.  I reached my destination with the grasshopper still hanging on.  I got out of my car and shooed it away. I went shopping for about an hour and when I came back I realized that it returned. However, this time it was resting on the back windshield. I shooed it away again but it moved to its original resting spot: the front windshield.  I shooed it away again. This time I got in my car and hightailed it out of the parking lot like a mad woman before it had a chance to hitch a ride back home.

Needless to say, a day after my chance meeting with the grasshopper I came across these beautiful tabletop images. Coincidence? I think not!  –XOXO, V.

    That is such a funny story. He liked your house and really wanted to go back to it. The plates are lovely. They are praying mantis, a cousin of the grasshopper (but you probably knew that). 🙂 I shoo grasshoppers away from my yard as they have the most voracious appetite for fresh green foliage.
    Have a lovely weekend. Our weather should be ideal for spring!

      Yes, I did notice the difference since but couldn’t resist posting…I figured, it was close enough!

      I didn’t mind him hitching a ride with me but didn’t want him coming back with me since I would like to prevent any damage to foliage. I have been known to chase them around the garden to move them along…a lovely sight (lol!).
