Creatures in our backyard

We love searching our backyard for creatures 🙂 Master D often goes out to play with ‘my friends the ants – they’re real you know mum’.

We like to watch worms travelling by…

Check for slaters and bugs under our stump seats…

And of course, play with the resident creature – our Wookie dog (more information about this creature here)!

Wookie also likes to sniff out the creatures in our backyard. His latest ‘friend’ was a big ugly toad – ick. We had to move this creature on since Wookie liked licking him which led to much carpet cleaning.

Master D still hopes toad and his friends might visit again… I’m happy if they don’t!

Warm wishes, Kelly

    Yikes, froggy looks scary, hahaha. Cool how he’s camo’d himself to the ground.

    I loved the pictures in this post. My oldest was always so fascinated with all the creepy crawlies outside. He’s 15 now and still fascinated.

    What a fun back yard, Kelly! Much more excitement than ours–we get birds and bunnies, squirrels and chipmunks and at night a few other critters, but nothing too exciting. Thanks for sharing on Sharing Saturday!

    What a great day. Quick question though – how do you keep your stump seats looking so fresh and new? Mine get really yucky fast.
