We’ve spent quite a bit of time observing nature this week. The older girls I homeschool are in the middle of a project for Biology. They are observing plants, birds, trees, animals—whatever they can find and making a notebook for their end-of-the year project.
The younger crew found this dead dragonfly on the deck and enjoyed it for quite a while.
Many birds have been seen. The crazy woodpecker gave entertainment, along with ducks, geese, blue jays, robins, Rufus-sided Towhees, crows, and many more.
The flowers are blooming like crazy and the garden is growing like mad!
It’s a great time to be outdoors! I go out as often as I can, even if I have to dodge raindrops! Trust me, there’s plenty to do!! That weed is purslane, and I continue hoeing it out–the purslane in the picture is gone now, thank goodness–I have been hoeing. The garden is sure loaded with it. I no sooner get it out then a new batch comes up.
