Field Sketching Friday

Friday, my co-worker/naturalist, Kristen Marshall Mattson and I led a nature journaling workshop for members of Spring Island.  What a great way to start the day!   Walking through the woods, examining plants, sketching our finds, adding details, learning new things both art and nature related.  YUM! None of us wanted it to end :)

Did you know.....
White flowers are pollinated by moths? (the flowers show up better at night)
The purple flowers of wild ginger is pollinated by beetles?
That a hollow tree can still live and thrive as long as the outer 'living shell' is not compromised?


  1. I LOVE your "did you know" facts. Mother Nature is awesome and knows just how to take care of her children.

    1. Thank you, Judie! Hope to create and show more of this type of 'did you know' page :) Yes, indeed..... Mother Nature knows her stuff!
