And it is Easter Sunday. Happy Easter to you all.
I am being distracted by a minute caterpillar making its way down my screen. I have no idea where it could have come from or where it thinks it might be going.
|As you can see, it is not very big.|
It seems to be my time for insects. I was helping to clean out a shed that has been infected with termites. The floor was very unsafe and we had to tread carefully.
|This used to be solid timber flooring.|
|If you look very closely, you will see the dreaded 'white ants'.|
Then I saw what appeared to be two huntsman spiders peering over the shelf I had been clearing. It was above shoulder height and I had been reaching around on the shelf without looking all that carefully. As I was unable to step back quickly, I tentatively made my way our of the shed, got my camera, and took the photos from a distance.
It turns out that one of the scary sights was a spider skin and the other was a dead spider. But it had been startling at first.
We took some of the infected wood to a pile that will be burnt - as soon as we are allowed to have outdoor fires. Let's hope the fire restrictions are removed soon.
Well, the caterpillar has made it all the way down the screen. I suppose I had better take it outside and hope I can find an appropriate plant for it to live on. Maybe it came from the hollyhock flowers that I am still collecting - apparently it isn't new plants, it is offshoots of the original. It is still producing quite a lot of flowers, has been for months now.
