Nature Journals Week

This meadow is bursting with activity today. The sky was full of huge billowing clouds, and everything is slowing going to seed, preparing for winter’s rest.

For my Calendar of firsts, I sketched the Elderberries & a Swallow. Which I managed to make look like a Penguin!
Our phenology wheels for August:
No liturgical festivals this month, so I sketched an apple from the garden, and Rose sketched a basket-full that she collected to represent harvest-time.
I also sketched Hawthorn, Rose sketched the carrots and potatoes she grew.
