Tomorrow, I'm going on a hike with a childhood friend. I'm happy about it because we haven't met in a long time, and hiking turns awkward silences into nothing but serenity. It will be about 16 degrees centigrade where I'm living, which is nice, too. >>17
Definitely. I've seen plenty of white butterburs already, and even a few anemone nemorosa.
The croaking of frogs was already part of the ambient noise of a pond I often visit, especially so if the weather has been sunny.
Also audible humming of bees in one of my neighbours garden. He's an amateur beekeeper.
In the woods, I've seen plenty of butterflies I cannot name.
The heaps of brushwood, collected by farmers and foresters, at the side of the paths I walk, I cannot help but associate those grey collections of intermingled matter with brains, or other networks.
Has anyone of you book recommendations for someone who wants to learn about different species (of the animal/plant kingdoms) in order to get better at identifying them? I sometimes want to know names for all those nice creatures.
