What’s Real, What’s Not; What’s Right, What’s Wrong

My dad is one of the best tall-tale story tellers.  Just the other week he had my mom questioning whether a real rose was actually real or just a silk rose; she stuck it in water and hoped for the best (mostly that this wasn’t one of his jokes and less about whether the rose … Continue reading

Bumble Bees, and Grasshoppers, (and That’s About it), Oh My!

Once again on a walk I ran into some of my new best friends as of this summer – a large bumble bee.  He was pretty easy going and didn’t mind me too much, which is a plus! And then there was the grasshopper…which got me thinking…do grasshoppers turn brown as they age, or are … Continue reading
