When my ceramics pieces started to get too large to keep on my window sills (which are getting pretty full), many of them ended up on my counter. So I am happy to mobilize them when I need somewhere to store fresh fruit, like these cherries and apricots from the Okanagan (Keremeos BC), and blueberries from my mother-in-law in Agassiz :
I set out two bowls of water for him, and this ceramic cylinder, in case he is looking for a place to hide (although I think it may not be big enough for his liking). Here he is, crawling past it. That was the last I saw of him last night. I hope I will see him again, and most of all, I hope he chooses to live in my garden for the remainder of the year.
