We Were All Meant To Be Naturalists…

“We were all meant to be naturalists, each in his degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.”

Charlotte Mason

Rosie’s Phenology Wheel is a new pretty Rock Dove that has taken to visiting the garden, and a hot cross bun to represent Good Friday.

My Phenology Wheel for March includes Daffodils and Holy Week.

If you’d like some inspiration for keeping your own Phenology Wheel, I have written the Phenology Wheel Guide that will hold your hand as you begin. Keeping a phenology wheel is a smashing way for you and your family to connect both with nature and each other. A way for all the family to gather together to spend time nature journaling; it doesn’t take up much time at all, and is perfect for families who have children of different ages and stages. Everyone can work together, but at their own level.

Let Nature…

And hark! how blithe the throstle sings!
He, too, is no mean preacher:
Come forth into the light of things,
Let Nature be your teacher.
