May 31st, 2008

Kind of a two-pronged type of day today. The morning was dedicated to helping the Parks Dept. plant ornamentals at the Longfellow Gardens down the street from us. Fifteen motivated green thumbers turned out, and Sharon won a Purple Salvia in the raffle.
Later in the day I worked at Wood Lake, doing a Nature Treasure Hunt Birthday Party for 12 / six year-old girls. My ears are still ringing. In between the festivities, I checked out the feeders and dock. Mrs. Wood Duck was perched advantageously on her box to reroute any traffic pertaining to all goings-on inside or out.
