The Stuff of Nightmares or, The View Out My Window
In our new house, the computer is set up in the basement right next to a window with a good sized window well. So while I'm working on the computer, I can gaze out the window at the gravel at the bottom of the well. Boring, right? Not so. For in my window well are trapped about 30 grasshoppers of varying sizes, at least 3 big black crickets, some rolly polly (potato, pill) bugs and at least 3 spiders, one wolf and two of the web building variety. Also there have sprouted at least 100 tiny Siberian elm seedlings. Hateful things, Siberian elm seedlings. But I have my own, gross, little terrerium. So lucky......really.
