Every time I go to water a certain pot, I find this katydid on one of the blooms. Usually it’s the gerbera daisies.  Sometimes it’s the marigolds.

It doesn’t seem to be doing much damage.  And of course in the evening,  when the air conditioner isn’t running,  I can hear its “katy–katydid” call.

Also notice, our “freedom lawn,” particularly the crabgrass,  is not suffering too much from drought stress. We do not irrigate. And yes, there are dry patches.  And yes, crabgrass thrives in the heat. We hand pull it before it sets seed (if we don’t get heat stroke first!). Otherwise, there’s always next year.
