In two weeks I will be in Charlotte, N.C., taking part in the National Reach Out & Read Literacy Summit! We’ll be talking about children, and the importance of nature, art and creativity. I am looking forward to lots of interesting conversations!
Thinking about the critters out in the gentle Georgia rain. This week the peepers were making their presence known, loudly, in vernal pools near the local pond.
I am still getting used to the deep red soil of this area….like the ground has rusted. These chunky-red-barked trees are everywhere too. I expect a lot of them are loblolly pines. The woods are carpeted with their needles. They are used to mulch people’s yards and there are even some bales of needles under my little house.
