Our project was to paint and decorate some terra cotta pots during class, and stamp witty sayings on them. I also bought some herbs for each student to plant in their pots.
Of course, I made one for myself as well, and planted some parsley… having read recently that parsley was one of the least used herbs and was such a great herb to have on hand, I decided I would give it a shot.
A few days later I noticed I had a little friend who popped up. There must have been his tiny egg on the plant and I didn’t notice. But there he was all adorable and tiny.
He was writhing and wriggling…
He wasn’t eating even though I had put him up to the leaves that he loved so much.
He was NOT acting like he normally does each day… I was concerned that the fall had injured him. And seriously… WHAT was that goo I had to clean up???
