frog mummy

we found this all dried up frog on a canoe trip today. it's incredible, you can see its spine! i almost felt like jørn hurum when he discovered ida (well, not quite the significance, but still - ahem).
it now has its new home on our verandah. we're hoping it will dry up even more so that the faint smell, which is - hm, interesting - will go away.
noticing...
  • her blue shoe flying off her foot as she swirls
  • him pretending not to know that i'm taking pictures of him
  • the different colours of my knitting needles

my house, visty? MY house? i wish! lol
no, this is the head quarter of a local environmental organisation. we paddled our canoes to this place, and spent a couple of hours in this wonderful garden.
