Last week we went for a four-wheeler ride with snow falling around us. So far, it has been the coldest July on record. I think the birds are knitting socks for their fledglings since it is so cold. It is definitely taking longer than usual for birds to fly from the nest. This robin was busily feeding her chicks between sitting on them to warm them up.
In a shadowy spot near a lake grow the most beautiful Northern Lady Slippers. So elegantly they glow in the dappled sunshine I just had to inelegantly sit in the moss to sketch the last few blooms of the summer.
