weird sky

Friday, August 17th, 2007

Tonight, at around 8:15 p.m., Don called me to bring my camera and look at this weird cloud formation. This is not the sunset, but some clouds almost opposite the direction of the setting sun (click on images for larger view). I’m guessing that they were picking up some of the light from the sun, […]

weekend wanderin’

Saturday, June 23rd, 2007

The weekend weather forecast is looking good, so we’re off to do some hiking on local trails. However, I wanted to remind everyone that the latest edition of Good Planets are Hard to Find is up at Susannah’s Wanderin’ Weeta blog. While you’re there, you might like to check out a three part series of […]

a cool day

Thursday, June 7th, 2007

The weather has been very erratic here over the past few weeks.

summer skies

Friday, May 4th, 2007

We’re finally having some great weather here – sunny skies and temperatures around 18C (64F) and it’s supposed to become much warmer next week. No doubt, the mosquitoes will be making their appearance en masse any time now! We’re planning a weekend of hiking, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be posting over the […]

bioblitzing here at the farm

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Diurnal Firefly (Ellychnia corrusca) resting atop a bright yellow Xanthoria species of lichen which is growing over a Physcia aipolia lichen. This is just an update to let everyone know that I haven’t fallen off the face of the Blogger BioBlitz map — at least, not yet! I skipped posting yesterday to concentrate on taking […]
