My first blog! I decided to open with my most basic love–the natural world. Since I was a very young child, I have loved being outdoors. My brothers and I climbed trees, played with bugs, nursed baby squirrels whose mother was killed, and almost frightened my mother out of her wits by capturing a small coral snake.
Since I grew up in Florida, I had plenty of opportunity to meet Mother Nature first hand. I later joined several groups working to save unique sites, and served for several years as a docent at a nearby preserve.
As a natural concomitant, I play in my garden most days and enjoy planting and nurturing both native and exotics in my yard. I plan to post pictures of other views I enjoy from my windows as well as my header photo. Hope to hear from others of like tastes.
