Even Van Gogh’s Starry Night pales in comparison to the fresh beauty and scent of flowers brought indoors from the garden.
Whether they’re lilies, peonies or another seasonal favorite, fresh blooms have the ability to bring any room in the house to life.
Although I don’t usually bring cut flowers indoors, these peonies fell onto the ground after a recent rain . As peonies require ants to complete the pollination process, I was careful to inspect the blooms prior to bringing them indoors.
Little did I know that something else had hitchhiked in with the blooms, likely on a leaf. It was only a matter of a few minutes before it had made its way onto the table leg. Can you see it?
Nature is always full of surprises.
Whether you’re enjoying nature indoors or outdoors on this beautiful sunny day, Happy Canada Day to you! By the way, this slug will be spending the rest of the day outdoors
