May rain & slug sightings

“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.”

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Happily roaming in the rain
Close up
More than we’ve seen at our place in all these years
Amazed at the number of slugs and pill bugs

Welcome to my blog! My name is Esther and I'm so happy you are here. I'm an avid nature photographer and a daydreaming thinker. My posts revolve around photos of nature's beauty, homeschooling adventures with my 2 kids, sporadic reflections on my child's heart condition, Bible reading reflections, gardening feats, and other mish mash things. Hopefully you'll leave encouraged, pensive, or smiling at the simple things of life. Thank you for stopping by and hope you'll find some interesting posts to read!

    1. You should have seen how many slugs came out that night! They have a peculiar smell to them; not so pleasant, kind of like raw fish. But they are fascinating to look at.
      Kiddos did some research on them and slugs do not have a shell like snails, but they have an internal shell. Wild stuff!

      1. Yes, slugs are strange and I bought into the whole idea of putting out the beer-filled containers to trap and drown them to keep from eating the plant leaves. No, it did not work and the backyard smelled of stale beer and rotting slug bodies.
