365 Nature – Day 115

In 2016 I’m doing a 365 Nature project. Each day of the year I will post something here about nature. It may be any format, a photo, video, audio, sketch or entry from my nature journal. It could be a written piece. Each day I will connect to nature in some way and share it here by the end of that day. You can keep up-to-date by subscribing to the RSS feed or be notified by email. See all the 365 Nature posts.

Yesterday afternoon we went outside and I did some weeding in our flower meadow and again noticed the bees on the California Lilac. It was cooler than it had been and there weren’t quite as many as there were on Day 111, but I found a few to try and get photos of.

Today we bought some new items for camping, like a sleeping bag. My previous sleeping bag was one of those old, flannel-lined ones which I’d had since I was a child and not altogether warm. When we camped last summer, one night got very chilly and that old sleeping bag just wasn’t enough, despite my wearing a sweatshirt and warm socks inside it. We had a lot of fun last summer camping, I love camping and I’m so glad my daughter also seems to love it. We have a couple of camping trips planned this summer and hopefully we’ll find some time to squeeze in more.
