Just the back yard!? Nah, I want the front and side yards landscaped in natives too.

Winter tends to reveal things. Today I spotted several praying mantis egg cases.

That is so cool! I just found one on Saturday and was wondering what it was, I was guessing egg case or gall but I didn't know what kind. It makes sense, because it was on one of the mantis's favorite plants in my yard. Thanks David!

I'm glad I could help.

I didn't know what they were until last year...then again, I don't think I had even seen one until last year. At first I thought it was a chrysalis. One of the kind members at Wildlife Gardeners told me what it was; now I recognize them with ease. :)
