A baby grasshopper sits on the leaf of a Crown of Thorns plant (Euphorbia Millii) in our back yard – Which is really just a 10′ X 15′ patch of concrete behind our South Philly row home.
Grasshoppers have invaded our garden. I wouldn’t mind it so much, but they’ve been eating our basil.
I haven’t seen any of the adults this year, just these little guys. They’ve probably become food for the family of cardinals that have nested nearby.
In the years since we moved in, several of our neighbors have also started gardens in their small paved-over lots.
We’ve got quite the little microcosm going.
