Little glimpses of our summer so far. Lots of animal encounters, playing in the creek, short hikes and explorations. We raised and released Pipevine swallowtail butterflies, nurtured rescued mice and read voraciously. The crisp fall air is making an early entrance, so we make the most of these remaining summer days. I've been preparing for fall with a little herbal medicine-making. Soon will be time to harvest roots. Next time, I'll post our list of summer reads.
