Nature at Home

This morning I got a little visitor in the kitchen.

He was about the size of the nail on my pinky finger. Still scared the heck out of me at first because I didn't know what it was.

He was just hanging out on our grocery totebag.

Also, for the first time our little alien-looking orchids are blooming. They're just about to bust it out with some flowers. So excited!

It was kinda hard to capture the spidery offshoots for the flowers. But if you look close, you'll see the buds there.

I don't know what these are called, but maybe it's tiger something.

There are no tigers in Africa.

So you say. I think I just proved you wrong.
