Tiny Finds at the Wallow
|December 29, 2009||Posted by Issa under Homesteading|
Since moving in at The Wallow, I’ve spent a lot more time outside than I ever have before. Oh, I’ve always loved the outside, but it’s usually contained to specific experiences, like camping or hiking. Here at The Wallow, the outside is within my bubble of what counts as “home”. There’s less distinction between inside and outside, and I’ve simply been noticing more.
Here are a few of the tiny things I’ve noticed lately, that were preserved in pictures.
A tiny frog I found in the yard. I’ve always loved catching frogs, ever since I was a child. It’s fun to watch other people try to catch frogs, which often means they are hopping across the grass failing to catch it. Catching frogs takes the same mindset that opening jars and catching grapes in your mouth does – you just do it – and it’s really fun for me. I accept being peed on as my punishment for momentarily catching the animal against its will:
A spider web attached to the front porch:
And a closeup of the spider:
A mystery plant near The Bowl that looks like teeny tiny tomatoes:
And some snails hanging out in a bit of wood in the front yard:
