Garden Visitor – Green Darner Dragonfly

This morning as I was taking in the garden and enjoying its progress, I happened to notice a visitor hiding among the pumpkin leaves.

This Green Darner Dragonfly stayed all day under the leaves.

Before I headed inside this evening for the night, I checked one last time to see if my visitor had moved on.

Nope, still hanging out in the pumpkin patch.

Even if I don’t get a single pumpkin this year, finding this beautiful wonder of nature taking refuge under the leaves makes planting the patch worthwhile. There is a reason for everything, and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
