Following Up

So, as a follow up from yesterday’s post, I have photos!

Of course, I missed the baby lizard and the cricket wearing a shirt, but I did get some shots of the strange mud buildings.

Mud Structure 1 Mud Huts Mud on the side of the ditch

and our strange looking watermelon:

Cucamelon! Cucamelon 2

Now, if any of these “sightings” are, well, what any self-respecting Southerner should be able to identify with their eyes closed, don’t tell me!

I’m a Southerner, by fact of being born in Florida, and living mostly in Louisiana, BUT my mother is a yankee, and I grew up all around the world, so I don’t have a flair for many seemingly Southern things.

I couldn’t tell you what hunting season it is, or what’s biting at the pond this time of year, either.  But I digress – I know the mud huts are commonplace ’round these parts – I’ve just never questioned how they got here… until now.

So, if you can help identify them, we’d be so grateful!

We await with baited breath. 🙂

    Since you mentioned it was a ditch I thought of crayfish. Mud bugs. http://www.backyardnature.net/n/a/crayfish.htm That has a picture.

    http://www.crowleysridge.org/!userfiles/pdfs/education/ar_crayfish_activity.pdf I thought this one is good for the younger ones.

    Can we come over for watermelon?

      Martha – you are officially my Hero!!

      That is EXACTLY what those structures are!
      And I’ve heard the expression “Mud Bugs” forever, as it relates to crawfish, but NEVER put the two together!!

      Yay – I can’t wait to tell the kids!
