We got out the car on Saturday afternoon to find what looked like a violently green jelly sweet had been left on the wall of our front garden. Please don’t be under any illusions that we have a grand front wall – it’s the original 1950’s construction from when the houses were built and it’s held together with 60 years of mud, moss and not a great deal else.
So, back to the violently green jelly sweet sitting on the wall – it warranted further investigation. So we had a look, and a little prod… and then it moved. Nestled in the moss was a rather large caterpillar. Out came the cameras, and off we went on a bug hunt.
I appreciate that slugs and snails aren’t everyone’s cup of tea and I haven’t included our pictures of ants, worms and woodlice! However, when I look closely at the swirl of a snail shell, or how green the caterpillar is, the symmetry of the spots on a ladybird or how clever the antennae of a snail are, I can’t help but think they’re beautiful. Mother Nature doing her stuff once again.
So that’s my beautiful thing for the week – nothing mega-inspirational but something that made us all look a bit harder and say ‘wow’. What’s yours?

I’m also linking this post up to The Gallery this week. The theme is ‘colour’; the intricacies and subtle variations of colour that can be seen in just our front garden, never cease to amaze me.
