There has been some seriously scary stuff in our backyard today. First this bug on the garage. Oh, that's just a stick bug you say imperiously, but it is a seriously big stick bug or whatever it is. The photo does not do justice to how seriously big this bug is.
Then I was trying to enjoy the beautiful fall weather (90 degrees, 100 percent humidity—yuck) with a sit in the backyard and this brightly colored totally seriously scary thing caught my eye. Because of its neon-y color, I assumed it was the handle of a sippy cup stuck in the ground under our Kentucky Red Bud tree. But no, this tentacle is ALIVE! And scary! Plus there is a scary green slimy thing growing around the scary orange tentaclely thing.
I am out of here.
