Make one thing every day, wander like a gypsy, and shine happiness like the sun

My new pet

on February 11, 2013

Gary.  (Yet another Sponge Bob reference, hmmm).  I have a fondness for lost animals-of any kind.  A few years ago I found this grey tree frog on my stephanotis when I brought it in  for the winter.  I made this terrarium and he lived happily for about a year and a half, quietly keeping me company by the sink.  After he passed the terrarium was empty-until tonight!  I found Gary on the sidewalk while I was working a few months ago.  I scooped him up, brought him home, and put him in a scented geranium on the kitchen sill.  I kept finding him in  various places around the kitchen and assumed the cats had fished him out of the dirt for soccer practice.  As I never actually SAW him move or come out of the shell, I assumed it was just that- a shell.  Well, tonight a movement in the potting soil caught my eye and, well, he’s alive!  I moved him to the vacant terrarium and now have a new kitchen companion.  Lucky me-and him 🙂  I’ll move him back to the garden in the spring, reluctantly.ImageImageImageImageImageImage
