I am so excited to be learning about the wonders of the Plant Kingdom… this research has been and continues to be so very inspiring for my screenplay, The Extraordinary Life of Mr. Tom Bottoms! O’ the wondering of the wee world!

But I am just too excited to wait and share “may we always sit in awe of others’ differings”. Watching this idea come to life after discovering and being inspired by the tiny family of mice that moved into our empty beehive in October is simply magical. I am so thrilled to report that the lilliputian family is still well and thriving all nestled in their bed of twigs and leaves with a very healthy stash of acorns in their bee-utiful new home!
