Have you ever heard of an giant african slug? I'm not sure if I should tell you to google it.... or if I should tell you to never, ever google them.... but man, they are interesting little (large) creatures. I've never seen one alive in the wild--- not a large one anyway, but holy cow, some of those guys are HUGE. There's a lake not far from us that basically has piles and piles (depending on the day/weather) of these empty shells. I'm guessing the birds (or dare I say, gators?) eat all the slugs... because like I said, I've never seen one.
We visited a local nursery this week and were head over heels for airplant designs we saw--- I knew I wanted to have fun at home making my own version--- I mean, not only would it be free, but how would fun would it be to go searching for the right supplies?! Right, I mean, we all want to hunt down giant african slugs (still don't google that), right?
We let Marlowe pick out two new airplants at the nursery--- just because. Then the next day, we hit the lake/park and searched for our own air plants and containers :) The longer stringy airplants are pretty easy to find in bushes around here--- I have bunches and bunches of them tied up around our fence and home. And well, those slugs end up everywhere in South Florida... but thankfully not in
I'm not sure if you guys are lucky/unlucky like us south floridians to have the biggest slugs EVER, but even if not, I totally recommend getting out there, searching trees and bushes for air plants and getting creative with planters. It would have been fun to paint these too.. but maybe that will be another project for a rainy day :) Marlowe loved it. And I love that the medusa air plant actually looks like a bit like a slug, but in a much cuter way ;)
PS. Thank you guys SO much for all your support and kind words about The Thirty Day Cleanse. Today is the last day to receive it for the sale price, if you're interested! Your support seriously means the world to me. I'm filled with ideas for another book, I can't wait. Thank you thank you!
