A mantis appeared on the screen of our bathroom window one
November day. "Not too many days left for you, are there?" we said
to her. When she was still there several days later we wondered if
it stays warm enough is she a perennial? So we brought her in,
where she lived on our jade tree and rosemary bush until late
February. We fed her crickets. Our cat Fraxy watched her but seemed
to know better than to take her on.
"Her?" "She?" We know it was a female. She left us an egg case
on our rosemary.
