Nature Notes 07-31-09


Nature Notes is the brainchild of Rambling Woods who challenges us to "look at something you might never had paid attention to..a flower…a plant..an animal…What changes are taking place?..Is your garden starting to come to life again?"



This is an artichoke that didn't get eaten. I love to see them go to seed, such spectacular color and texture.



Hmm, what's that crawling around in there?


Aha - a pollinator. Ms. Bumblebee, I presume.


PhotoStory Friday: Popsicle Toes

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek



It's been hellish hot here this week. Laurie makes popsicles
out of fruit juice for the toddlers. Hangs the hose with a mist setting from the apple tree branch. Puts swim diapers on the children. Everyone is happy.
