“So come, get ready. Don’t delay! We’re on a nature trail today.”
November in and out all ready! Man – time goes by so fast! We didn’t get out too much this month, it seems. I just tried to rake up the seemingly endless amount of fallen leaves. I had really worried that, all by myself this year, I would not be able to, and though I didn’t keep the yard sparkling green as in other years, it turned out that it wasn’t as impossible as I had thought. We did see some fun things meanwhile though.
Mountains of piles of raked leaves. (Doesn’t actually seem so bad in the picture, but in real life, it was a lot! But I love our woods anyway.)
We also found some slimy caterpillars while raking – and they were slimy.
Elizabeth and I dispersed more milkweed seeds.
Since the temperatures where in the 50’s for most of the month, the moths were still out, and we found this one on a cool day. Elizabeth wanted to bring it inside where it could be safe and warm, so we put it in a glass jar with some leaves and grass. (I haven’t seen it move since then…)
