Rosie’s Phenology Wheel for April

She sketched one of her new pets: A rat named Roy! For the special day section, she sketched a log. We had a special funeral ceremony for a wee dead frog that she found; it was sent away down the water on a log.
Love that girl!

 

My Phenology Wheel for April

A Dandelion & Daisy, along with Easter Day & St. Georges Day for the liturgical / special day section.

 

My Calendar of Firsts this week:

Rosemary in flower, Marsh Marigolds, and April showers.
