One day, I went to water the plants in my shop and I noticed some funny little thing moving around in the dirt.
As I got closer to get a better look, the little creature hid itself and began trembling. Not wanting to scare the poor little thing, I went off to water my other ivy plants in the hallway.
Well, what do you know?! When I returned, my new little friend suddenly appeared right in the middle of my vignette. It seemed like this little guy now just wanted to follow me around the shop. I thought that it would be a good idea to let it just get comfortable in this new environment. So I bent down and told that cute little creature to make itself at home on that nice mossy floor and that I would create my vignette later.
But just as soon as I finished saying what I said, that little creature stood straight up and tried to communicate something back to me.
I got very close and listened to its attempts at communicating. It was trying very hard to tell me something but I had no idea what it could be.
I thought maybe it was asking me for something to eat or a drink. I walked away for a moment to think about what I could feed it.
When I returned there was a wondeful little surprise waiting for me. Then it made perfect sense what this little creature was trying to tell me.
She was responding to her primitive insticts and looking for the right place to rest and nest. How lucky for me that she picked my shop as her nesting place. Should I post pictures of the babies when they arrive?
