Hopper - kaydid - enjoying bed of yellow mums

2017-10-11 - Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home, 210 Greensburg Street, Columbia, KY - Photo by Ed Waggener, A Green Grasshopper found a home on a planter filled with yellow mums at Stotts-Phelps-McQueary Funeral Home today, Wednesday, October 11, 2017. According to Kellen Helm, it didn't take the entire village to get the mums ready for their October showing, but it did take the entire staff of four men and two women, to produce the finished scene. The bug - turns out a katydid, a knowledgeable expert says - is an uninvited guest. - EW
