It has been a week of nature discovery here around the farm house. Wesley and I found a baby snake at the back step of the house, which is currently unidentified. If you know anything about Australian snakes please feel free to leave a comment with your guess/species name.
The little jumping spider was also found at the back step this morning. I was walking outside to hang up laundry when I spotted a little speck. Moving slowly I peered closely and discovered it was a beautiful basking jumping spider. Pretty cool colours on it!
The lizard is actually a very small baby dragon lizard. It was in the grass at the back of the lawn that is growing up the fence. Thankfully I saw it or I might have accidentally killed it with the scissors I was using to trim the grass by hand.
Butterflies have been flitting around the yard drinking the water that remains on the grass from it’s sprinkler system.
Wesley and I were also exploring the yard and Japanese pepper trees today as they were just alive with the sound of bees darting too and from.
I feel really bad about this hair cut and I’m hoping it grows quick. Sorry my sweet little boy – if you see this image one day I never intended for it to be this shoddy!
You never know what’s going to pop up around the house – a lot of these things are a first for me. Wesley is so lucky to get to see all of this right here!
