This little guy turned up as a surprise - a free add-on -- on the plate of flowers which had been picked for worship. He (aren't little boys made of slugs and things? It has to be a he!)- he had burrowed so happily into this red hisbiscus. He looked rather sweet, and he was a fellow lover of hibiscus, wasn't he? So he was deposited, flower and all, into a little patch in the garden under the shade of some arum lilies. Looks happy, doesn't he?

Massive little fellow! (Sorry about the oxymoronic sentence..)


Sweet, I wnat to say , but yuck - a slug.

However, good of you to deposit him safely

Somehow he reminds me of something out of Alice in Wonderland - the caterpillar, perhaps?
And little boys are not THAT yucky - they're made of snips and snails and puppy dog tails. And little girls, of course, are made of sugar and spice and everything nice!
