This takes ‘Natural home birth’ to a new level!
Guess who has produced a multitude of little darlings in our garden?
We have been watching and waiting, as the mama has patiently stayed
and not strayed from her duties.
She has only removed her beady eyes for a few hours daily over the past few weeks,
but yesterday nothing was going to budge her robust frame.
Due date had arrived and she was watching eagerly as her young started to hatch and emerge, the hatchlings promptly shedding
their silky ghost-like skins and then… they disappeared!
What miracles and mysteries so intertwined and right here, in our own back yard!
No need to go anywhere really, with our own beady eyes opened
who knows what we might find at the bottom of our homespun Christmas stockings?
