This week in Exploring Nature With Children is ‘Night Time Sky Week’.
Here are some helpful links to get you going:
- The Perseid meteor shower 11 /12 August
- The partial lunar eclipse 7/8 August
- The coming solar eclipse 21st August
I don’t have much to share with you this week; the girls have been away this week riding, and I have been pounding the keyboard, working on the soon-to-be-released Guided Journal to accompany Exploring Nature With Children.
I have been able to work on my Calendar of Firsts, however. I sketched the Ragwort that is filling the meadow right now, and a wee common wasp that was buzzing around. I also noted the rain. The never ending, heavy rain!
Nature is the art of God
For her July phenology wheel, Rose sketched a Barn owl and represented Independence Day, in honour of our American friends.
For my Calendar of Firsts this week, I sketched the raspberries in the garden and a fledgling Sparrow that Phoebe-cat brought in. Fortunately, it was fine, and we were able to put it back into the garden very quickly.
