Friday Follow-Up

This week:

-- We spent a pleasant afternoon at the Museum of Osteology near Oklahoma City. We'd been waiting until our granddaughter was old enough to think it wasn't icky or creepy, and this was the year. We worked on a scavenger hunt paper for her age group, looking through the museum for answers to questions and comparing skulls, claws, and the size of the eggs in their collection. Of special interest was the skeleton of a horse, as well as skulls and skeletons of several of the animals we saw last week at the wildlife ranch and at the zoo. Science is absolutely intriguing - at least to me!

-- We also went to the Myriad Botanical Gardens; perhaps a very hot afternoon is not the best time to go visit a tropical greenhouse though.


-- We made a bird feeder and a butterfly feeder. So far no birds or butterflies, but we are still hopeful.

-- Our neighbor finished round baling our hayfield, stacked our share of the bales, and repaired the gate he'd used. How nice!

-- My post "How to Harvest Yarrow" was featured at Natural Living Monday, Eco-Kids Tuesday, and Backyard Farming Connection!
