I'm hearing a Cardinal outside just singing up a storm! In the past few days I've heard the chirps and singing of Robins too...what a nice reminder that Spring isn't too far away.
In my class at school, the kids were busy building with legos and one happened to notice a ladybug just crawling around the table. They screamed, Miss. Mary!, there's a bug over here, come quick!! As I walked up to the table, and offered my hand to the little bug...the kids just looked at me...how can you let a bug crawl around on your hand? Oh, I don't mind at all.. this one little girl was actually frightened of this little creature..she kept saying....don't ladybugs bite? They don't bite I said. They are a gardener's friend. They eat the harmful bugs that try to destroy plants. She wasn't convinced. :)
I enjoy my work with the kids. They are a lot of fun.
Is it Spring yet, at your house?

Not spring yet here. Can't wait to see a ladybug in the backyard. We are counting birds this weekend though :)

Keep up the great work you are doing, teaching young children about gardening and nature.

Isn't it so satifying to teach someone something that they don't know?
Glad to see you back!
