When I went to let the birds out today, a whole forest of mushrooms had sprouted.
Anya and I were picking apples from the farm today, and we happened across a wild morning glory:
And an Anya:
When Anya and I were harvesting corn today, we found a butterfly on the corn stalks. It seemed like it was drying its wings – slowly flapping as it basked in the sun.
I found this guy stuck in our greenhouse this morning. I let him walk onto a leaf and carried him outside — and he quickly flew away.
There was so much haze today that the sun was a glowing pink disk this evening.
We took an hour to check all the maple buckets before the sap run starts again — and paused to walk in the river, find cool rocks, and try skipping rocks.
I saw the first robin today at 6:10 PM — he was sitting on a power line and singing a song.
We spent some time clearing a path to the maple trees — not wading through privet makes collecting sap a lot easier! Anya found some moss she really liked, and she wants to propagate it in a moist, shady spot by the house.
