I wonder if there is any actual grass in our yard. Ever couple weeks my lawn becomes a different type of weed. It is even more obvious by comparison now that I have a patch of actual grass in the back corner that I planted last fall. If I think about it I want to do something about it so I try not to think about it. Plus it’s not the worst lawn in the neighborhood. Continue reading
I saw a neighbor’s lawn that was covered with dandelion seed thingies.
Confession time… I don’t know the names for anything and always look them up. These thingies are called blowballs or clocks. So there you go. This neighbor is either very sad to have a lawn like this or very happy if he likes to make wishes or likes dandelions in his salad.
I love this series! I am always seeing things while driving that I want to capture and share but it is usually not practical to pull over and snap a picture. This morning I saw the bright sunlight turn a vine into a neon sign exaggerated by the woods in shadow behind. So tacky Mr. Sun!

I drive down the same streets all the time as probably most moms do. I go to the school and back, the grocery store, my sister’s house, and the library. That is about it. It can get pretty boring so when I see something new or different I get all excited and want to share! Of course it would be dangerous to snap a picture while driving and it isn’t always practical to pull over so I am going to turn it into a mini series of illustrated posts from memory… I Spy (my observations from behind the wheel).
I saw this fox yesterday…
First he was in a yard and when I passed he walked into the street and stared back at me. Others have seen foxes around here but I never have.
Foxes appear in lots of children’s books. One of my favorites is One Fine Day, a folktale retold by Nonny Hogrogian with Caldecott winning illustrations. This fox gets his tail cut of for stealing. Read the book to find out how he gets it back!
Do you see foxes? What is your favorite fox story? Please share!
Our earth is home to lots and lots and LOTS of living things. Continue reading
