Another sun face! For the past eight months I have passed The Concrete Lany which is on the west side of I-65 heading towards Louisville. Totally intriguing place with huge Bears, Rhino's and a large Jesus among various other animals, minerals and vegetables that span several acres! I found the entrance while lost the other day and returned yesterday for a look see. And what did I see? More sun faces!!! This one was so interesting and actually only occupied a corner of a photo that I cropped off. Doesn't it look like a sky of stars in the ceiling of the porch?
I was looking for a bird feeder (that was my story to gain access to the premises without causing suspicion) because I had met this guy while waiting to be called to the Customer Service desk at Dr. Bizers (don't ask) and he talked nonstop for ten minutes about his garden and yard until my name was barked out. Since he had to stop his longwinded soliloquy, which was fascinating once I understood it was not my purpose to ask any questions or to interject any comments of my own, but to only nod my head and make the expected facial expressions at the required moments. I saw my break to ask about the Japanese beetles in the area when he was sitting looking slightly winded and forlorn and the lady behind the counter went to find my records.
Birds, he told me. Birds will take care of them. Bluejays and the such. I can't remember which bird he did not like (I do not like starlings) but he shuddered at the mention of another species. Never harm a bird, he told me.(duh, haven't we all read To Kill A Mockingbird. I guess I would kill a buzzard if I had to, but even buzzards have their place and need).
"And grasshoppers. Never kill a grasshopper."
Do grasshoppers help with the Jap beetles, or just never kill them? Anyway, he also hipped me that you can buy grasshoppers at a nursery. I have never seen any cages of grasshoppers for sale at the nurseries I have visited. Maybe I frequent the wrong ones.
I should go to his neck of the woods. I wouldn't mind running into him again. As long as I have nothing to say.
