The hustle and bustle of nature

picture018It’s summertime and everyone is running around making plans. Sometimes it’s nice to take a break and observe nature. I spent some time this morning watching one of the environmental gardens at the learning center. The activity is never-ending! Baby frogs are getting acquainted with their newly formed legs. Red spotted newts are hanging out in the bottom of the water garden while water striders skip along the top of the water. Dragonflies land on water lilies while cabbage butterflies and bumblebees flutter about in the milkweed. It’s amazing what you see when you stop and smell the flowers.
