Some time this winter we plan to fix our back yard/porch situation. I want my porch to look like this. Sorry I can't credit the pic, it's from Pinterest — looks like it was scanned from a magazine (?).
I followed an "odd nature" google-trail after my colorful mushroom post and found this freaky, freaky wattle cup caterpillar. Does this really exist?! What's even better is that I found a yarn company (Cephalopod) that actually made a wattlecup-inspired colorway of their yarn. Sadly Cephalopod went out of business in July but their yarns had other great names/inspiration like "Blue Ringed Octopus" and "Violet Tailed Bluet".
