There was great excitement in the garden this weekend. Work was underway to relocate a pile of uncomposted 'biodegradable' nappies. Dwelling underneath the pile we found these beauties. Giant centipedes.
Aren't they incredible? We live in a beautifully wild place near the coast and on the edge of a huge National Park and spotting wildlife is a big part of daily life. We hadn't seen giant centipedes before though.
They weren't happy at being found. Look at that blur of legs!
And about those nappies. We mainly used cloth nappies, or none, and Jed was out of them pretty quick, but on occasion we'd use what we had researched as the most natural and friendly to the environment disposable nappy. I have written to the company and won't out them until I hear from them. But lets just say it is highly disappointing when we chose those nappies not wanting to contribute to more landfill, having been told they were compostable and the freaking things are still sitting there entirely whole after six years! Grrr.
