this is the the kind of natural happening that i look forward to in spring; what a thrill to witness nature in action. there is so much happening all around us in the natural world, we just have to be open to it.
i have been reading the earth moved;on the remarkable achievements of earthworms by amy stewart. i’m sure it’s only going to add to my admiration of the earthworm ( yes, it’s true, i generally kiss all earthworms i come in contact with). ms. stewart is one of my favorite authors having also written another one of my favorite books concerning the natural world; wicked plants; the weed that killed lincoln’s mother & other botanical atrocities. the follow up to that is her latest book and is also next on my reading list; wicked bugs; the louse that conquered napoleon’s army & other diabolical insects.
it’s a beautiful day today and i should be getting my nose out of books and to work outside now that the strong winds have subsided.
i hope that the weather is beautiful wherever you are in the world.
