Forcing Forsythia and Tracking Down Terns
Tracked down some tern specimens for GNSI project at the Roberson Museum's Loomis Collection. Lots of specimens actually, adults with breeding plummage, juveniles, chicks, and eggs. Will be going back for longer drawing sessions. Had to try forcing some forsythia just to see blooms of something. Pussywillows in the garden are coming along.Found some snowdrops in the garden too:) Trying to get back up to speed with drawing and painting, etc since getting back from trip. What I am really thinking about is gardening though. Here is a good video about building a raised bed garden for small spaces. Have a nice weekend!
