I have never seen a preying mantis outside of gardening books.

The girls and I attracted the attention of my visiting brother with all our squealing in the front yard.

He just shook his head and went inside to finish his coffee.

He always thought I was strange anyway.

I have gotten 1 full grown yellow crookneck from this plant, BTW. The other 3 have shriveled up and died at about 3" long. Luckily my neighbors don't have such problems and I have enough large ones to make zucchini bread and enough small ones to marinade in balsamic vinaigrette and grill. Yum.
