Just for Fun
The official posters for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics have debuted. This exciting and diverse collection was created by fine artists, graphic designers, calligraphers, and photographers from Japan and beyond.
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.
