    I absolutely love the way you celebrated Michelangelo’s birthday. So perfect. I’m fascinated by the stick insect. How big is it? Do you have to lay an extra place at the table when it visits?

  • 11 se7en // Mar 15, 2011 at 2:41 am

    Hi Cheryl… Our stick insect is one of many visiting at the moment. They are at least as long as my hand… and they have tiny almost ethereal babies!!! No we don’t set a place at the dinner table, we usually plonk them in the hedge. Of course for Hood #6, my animal girl, they are her best friends and it not always easy to release them into the “wilds.” Hope you guys have a fun week!!!
