Nature Near You

Nature Near You

Sounds silly to have to seek out nature when it appears to be all around us.

But www.naturefind.com has taken it upon themselves to be searchable so that you can find nature near you, where you can enjoy it. (Driving by a crowd of pine trees on your way to work doesn't count, sorry.)

Beautiful Morning!

 

Juliette missed the rain yesterday afternoon as most of it passed to our South. It looks like the lawns and gardens will have to wait until our next opportunity for rain. This morning we are enjoying a relief from the heat and humidity. I enjoyed sleeping with the windows open and waking up to the sound of the birds singing. At 6:00am it was 59 degrees with a clear sky and light breeze.
