Exploring The Burg

We had a low in the high thirties last night.  Autumn is coming fast.  Even had the heat on this morning.  I love this time of year!

I saw this pretty little moth on my plumeria the other day.  I have since brought the plants inside due to the plunge in temperature.  But this is a Rosy Maple Moth.  You can read about them here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dryocampa_rubicunda

Today we went to the Knob Noster State Park.  I love to say “Knob Noster”.  It reminds me of Punxsutawney  – a place I have never been – but it is the home of Punxsutawney Phil the groundhog weather detector.  I think Knob Noster needs a Groundhog Day Celebration – or an Armadillo Day celebration.

Anyway, the park is beautiful.  Woods and more woods.  Picnicking and camping and fishing.

Here is some of what we saw:
