How are we all doing today?
I am good, thank you! I have our dinner bubbling in the oven, the washing is done and I have a few spare minutes with which to write this post 😉
Last week my car boot plans didn’t work out due to rain… yet again… but the weather for this weekend looks very promising… so hopefully I will get a chance of some booting…
This lovely 9 arm sea star came from Koh Rong in Cambodia.
Although sea stars live underwater and are commonly called “starfish,” they are not a fish. They do not have gills, scales, or fins like fish do and they move quite differently from fish. While fish propel themselves with their tails, sea stars have tiny tube feet to help them move along.
Did you know that sea stars have eyes? While they can’t see as well as we do, sea stars have an eye spot at the end of each arm. This is a very simple eye that looks like a red spot. The eye doesn’t see much detail, but can sense light and dark.*
I hope you enjoyed our little star fish lesson 😉
As for this week picture… I have for you a little bit of colour… after all summer is coming so it is time to replace all those blacks, greys and browns with something a little more bright.
Who / What Am I?
Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!
