I stopped working with fresh flowers a few years back, but on occasion I'll come out of retirement. I'm working on a party for a client this week and for this event, I had to order several flats of succulent plants.
Craig came downstairs to pay me a visit and discovered this teeny tiny little guy hiding in the plants.
We made him a little terrarium to keep him safe while we figured out what to do next. We weren't positive if he was a Northwest native that came in with the succulents, or if he had traveled from further distances and came in with a box of flowers a from warmer climate. If he wasn't native, we didn't want to sentence him to death, but letting him free outside last night. It's been awfully cold around her lately.
Craig did a little research and we think he's a Pacific Northwest Tree Frog. After doing a little reading, and learning they like to eat slugs, I set him free in our garden.
He's such a cute little guy. It was fun having him as an overnight guest. And now I can add "Frog Fosterer" to my resume.
And speaking of fostering ...
As soon as I get all these flowers out the door, we'll get us some more kittens. It just seemed silly to bring them in during this event. The first few days the kittens are here, they require the most care. I didn't want a situation where I couldn't be 100% available to them, so I decided to wait a couple more days.
Bean's been having fun hanging out with me in the flower studio. She loves checking things out and watching me work. Don't worry, she's not nibbling on anything. With the exception of Bear Grass, she's never been curious about what flowers taste like, she just finds it interesting watch. To be extra safe, anything poisonous is kept out of her reach.
Have a good Monday, everyone. If I have time to post while I'm finishing up this party, I will. But don't be surprised if I skip a day.
