Leaving so soon?
This morning, the wren babies peeped outside of the nest (ducking back in if they saw me), then hopped out just before noon, then flew around the patio and into the trees on the other side of the fence. Mama and Papa supervised the whole affair, continuing to supply bugs and chirps and directions, I'm sure.
Wishing blessings to each one....(Photo at left.)
First, time to pause a moment in gratitude to those who serve our country and to honor the memories of those who died while doing so.
I've also been pausing to watch the beautiful drama just outside my back door: five baby Carolina wrens who are growing fatter and more feathery by the day. A month ago they were just speckled eggs! Mama and Papa Wren keep up nearly constant flight paths through the back yard to supply bugs and grubs to their peeping brood. Must be agreeing with them! (Photos at left)
Happy almost-the-end-of-the School Year!
I'm attempting to show off a few examples of some great student work on a new page on my website: Student Gallery. (See tab above.)
With recent upgrades to my website hosting service, there have been some glitches in uploading pictures the last day or so, but these issues are being resolved. Thanks for patience in the meantime.
On a different note, (more…)
Thanks, too, to all the great folks at Maysville Elementary School for a terrific visit! Media Specialist Sara Mixon went all out to provide the school's first "Cultural Arts Week," and I was honored to participate.
What an imaginative bunch of kids! Thanks for all the hugs and howls. :0)
