Spent a wonderful summer volunteering with the Oakville
Horticultural Society Junior Gardening program. 12 families
spent 1 day a week learning about where their food comes from,
planting vegetables in their own plot and learning a bit about our
connection to the natural world. Such a GREAT program.
I can never let a summer pass without heading out to look for
butterflies and dragonflies. Not a very good butterfly year, only
saw 12 monarchs the whole season, but did see Giant
Swallowtails and am currently raising Wild Indigo Duskywings in
my house gardens. Fun!
Vacation spent in Nova Scotia was again fabulous. Lots of rocks
and minerals, sea glass hunting, rescuing a Variable Darner
dragonfly from a store window, sharing insects with the next door
neighbors and listening to the Barred Owls call at night.
