Just for Fun
October is upon us, and with it comes shorter days and cooler nights. Plants and wildlife are starting to prepare for the winter ahead. Our calendar this month features a few of our favorite players – acorns and squirrels. These two have the ultimate partnership.
This evocative line, so fitting for our September calendar design, is from the verse, "Dream tonight of peacock tails, / Diamond fields and spouter whales. / Ills are many, blessings few, / But dreams tonight will shelter you." But to whom should we attribute these lines?
Nesting birds in late Summer? Yes, and it’s the American Goldfinch featured on our calendar this month. August is peak nesting season for these acrobatic little birds when their preferred nest padding—milkweed’s fluffy down, thistle, other soft plants—is readily available.
June brings us halfway through the year and halfway through our calendar series. Over the years, we’ve had different themes and fresh layouts to share with you. For 2019 we decided animals would be a fun creative challenge, and this month’s Stingray is no exception.
There are few three letter words in the English language whose meaning provokes hope as much as 'may'. Whether you prefer dictionary.com or the Oxford English Dictionary tome, the definition of this little verb, express possibility, allows us to say we see opportunities on the way!
