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.
our garden! We came home, scrubbed them down a bit, and secured the air plant in the shells with a tiny bit of dirt. &Bingo, new fun friends. I’m probably going to string some of them up somewhere, but for now, they’re great scattered across our shelves.
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!
