The biggest, most beautiful walkingstick in the entire world has moved onto my front porch. Even better, it's the first walkingstick I've ever seen which isn't a dull brownish or brownish green color. This walkingstick has perfectly lovely redwoodish and yellow coloring. He's been there for two days now. I think he's moved in over here because i accidentally painted the front porch a combination redwood - barn red. Which is what happens when you don't read sealant cans. He blends in so nicely that even my extremely nosey dogs haven't noticed him yet. And I just went and checked, and he's still there. I'm hoping this means I can look forward to even more walkingsticks in the coming months.
