Wonder Wednesday 93: Dandelion Cake

  Dandelions – people love them or hate them it seems. Personally, I love them in all ways, shapes, and forms. They’re cheerful, tough, fun, nutritious (for humans and animals), medicinal, and effortless to grow. A plant that’s pretty, tasty, low maintenance, and is a toy for making wishes? Sounds good to me!

Wonder Wednesday 89: Bird Counting for Climate

  Depending on where you live, talking about the climate crisis can encompass a spectrum of emotions from confidence to hesitance to trepidation. But in my experience, people generally like animals.
