Pink Saturday – Pink Katydids!?

I can’t believe it is already Pink Saturday again! This week sure did zoom by with Halloween. We visited a great pumpkin patch and went trick or treating which isn’t a usual for us. How was your Halloween?

My pink today was brought on by a comment I received from Knitty over at Lazy Days and Sundays. I posted about a blue lobster for Blue Monday this past week and she said there are neon pink katydids too, so I had to check them out!

The resource of the photo is here.

I guess katydids change their color sometimes. It sounds somewhat rare, but they must be around something pink to try to camouflage themselves, probably all those pretty pink flowers we like to write about! Here is a great article I found on them.

I guess it’s true…you do learn something new every day!!

I planned to get some Christmas items up on Etsy last week, but time really slipped away. Nobody said being a work at home mom was going to be easy. I created some fun Christmas tags though, now I just need to get them up. So seriously look for them to be up this week in My Etsy Shop…I’m thinking Tuesday! I have plans for this weekend and a Photoshop assignment due Monday. Busy, busy!

Go on over to Beverly’s and check out the other wonderful Pink Saturday participant’s blogs! Thanks Beverly for hosting Pink Saturday!

Happy Pink Saturday!
