Wild Things

Today we went on a wild goose chase. So annoying. Grrr. Here are some other wild things around here.

Wild Animals: The slightly mad illustrations in a vintage alphabet book that I bought the other day.

Wild Herbs: the parsley growing from the cracks in our pathways.

Wild Hair: a curl for the memento box. The kiddos both have “mop tops” but I made a first attempt to tame one of them today.

Wild Wool: some fluffy scrap yarn pom-poms sprouting from the wall.

As for the search that inspired this post? I only had a hand-drawn map. We crossed the Tasman Bridge multiple times, going around in circles. In the end we learned that what we sought no longer exists.

Luckily we made a few serendipitous discoveries that were much better than what we were looking for. That’s the nature of getting lost.
