‘Tis the season to reflect on what has passed and to ponder the road ahead. Successes and failures, triumphs and tribulations are all part of why we get up in the morning no?
The reason I started this blog was to share knowledge and information, and get folks (myself included) more involved in local events and organizations. Not sure about you but my noggin overfloweth with founts of fresh flora and bounteous birds and bugs.
Amazing that after all these years (a whopping 5) I am still learning new plants every season. Just started learning our avian friends in the last few months; I’ve included some of my favorites. Feel free to sing along…
Twelve twining snapdragons:
Eleven burbling boykinias
Ten trees of heaven
Nine narrow bedstraws
Eight indigos (false)
Seven rock roses
Six death camas
Fiiiive flowering ash
Four Fish’s milkworts
Three thrashers tweeting
Two flickers feeding
And a yellow-rumped warbler in an oak tree
Now it’s your turn… This is my final post of the year, and I want to hear from you the readers. If you’ve learned a single plant, tried a new trail, joined OVLC, hiked with Lanny or Audubon, planted a native in your yard because of the Rambler we want to hear about it… I need validation!!! I know you’re not the chattiest bunch but this is my one appeal of the year, consider it a belated Hanukkah gift…
Have a great holiday season, see you in 2013.
