We have a little boy who likes animals. Our current menagerie include a hamster, a giant snail and now some stickinsects called Twig and Sticky (original, I know!) The stickinsects like fresh leaves. Bramble leaves to be precise. This means that three times a week you will find me rambling about our local copse, armed with gardening gloves, sharp scissors and a small boy very firmly directing operations. Come wind or shine, the stickinects must eat, so bramble hunting we go…
I don’t mind too much, and little boys need fresh air and lots of exercise too so it’s all good.
You can see how he’s enjoying learning to handle his new pets here
