A Welcome Sign of Spring

It is cold and rainy today in Tokyo, Japan. It is also a school holiday. Students here get a day off for the spring equinox, the first day of spring!

We didn't have to go far to see a sign of spring. Can you see what we found on the wall of the house? It was just outside the door on our balcony.

It is an egg case. Hundreds if not thousands of praying mantis will come out this spring. They are more than welcome in our garden!
