My Basil plant on the window sill above the sink, I just love the smell of Basil, Coriander, Lemon Grass, herbs in general really. I have since planted this out into a large pot, I want to be able to just throw a few Basil leaves in my salads now that Spring has sprung and Summer will be here in no time.
It has been raining for a few days too now and I raced outside with my camera yesterday, before everyone arrived for Father's Day lunch, look what I found......
Firstly the big hairy guy caught my eye, he is quite amazing so hairy, bristly and wet. He looked like he had a punk hairdo in the rain. Then as I was scouring round the gum tree I spotted this cocoon, made with what look like his or her hairs rally cool hey!!!! And then I spotted this little guy, well he was off and running or crawling, I wish I could watch him grow into the big one.
I think this is his/her mouth not sure though.
The rain was wonderful and the weather bureau is predicting good falls throughout summer, now that will be a novelty round here. We have been in such a drought for so long now. It's wonderful though outside after the rain. Like a tiny fairy wonderland, dripping with little baubles on the tip of each branch.
Treasures to be discovered, captured and set free. Happy Days.
