~it starts with this everday , many times a day really…
~we have been enjoying little outings as a family. There have been a lot of plant sale happenings around town. Last week was the Dixon plant sale, (forgot the camera, but the grounds are so awesome!). This weekend was the Lichterman Volunteer plant sale and we enjoyed it quite a bit. It has very large areas of natural habitats such as the woodland, the meadow, the lake and the native plant loop. There are centers to learn about the wildlife as well.
~ you can’t see it here, but the geese are nesting soon, the goslings should be appearing within a few weeks..
~ a little close up of the lake..
~ the geese are rather friendly, only softly hissing when pedestrians walk too closely to the nests with mama on them..
~ from the native plant loop and the woodland gardens, tons of may-pops, we also enjoyed the wood poppies, Jacob’s ladder, wild phlox, and tons of dwarf bottle brush buckeye..
~ I believe this is called blood flower or some such name, beneficial for hummingbirds and butterflies.. I had to bring one home!
All in all great fun was had by all!
