My dad is a botanist, and my mum has a strong interest in entymology. This has been a great blessing in my life. I can't imagine what it would be like to think plants were boring, or to run screaming from a bug! I hope I can pass the same feelings of fascination on to my boys - though at the moment I am having trouble convincing Wombat not to pick all these baby pomegranates before they have a chance to become fruit. At least I seem to have finally gotten the "don't squish the little critters" message through to him, though. (Click on the photo to really see the insect - he's a cutey!)
