I have a TON of medium-large blank canvas's from when I was so eager to paint but found a blank canvas way too intimidating. My goal for this summer is to paint.. well at least half of them! #springcleaning This progress pic is canvas #1 🌾 But don't worry, leaf painting is still priority 🍁💚

It’s the last day of April! Which means I get to post my finished phenology wheel for the month. I love it, I’m especially proud of my great blue heron and red-winged blackbird. I have got to stop choosing iridescent things to paint, it is so hard! . . . If you are curious about the top right corner, I have a whole post about it a couple weeks back. I talk about homeschooling imperfectly, and some of my takeaway from AO Camp meeting. . . . I have links on my bio to the paints, notebooks, and water brush I like to use! Thank you so much for using my links! Your support adds no cost to you, but gives me pennies on the dollar which helps fund our homeschooling adventure! . . . #phenologywheel #kaylasphenologywheel #aocm2019 #redwingedblackbird #greatblueheron #pickerelweed #blanketflower #northerncardinal #paintedbunting #naturestudy #naturejournal #naturejournaling #mooncycles #heisrisen #emptytomb #resurrectionfern #redratsnake #vierawetlands #backyardnaturestudy #charlottemason #charlottemasoneducation #amblesideonline #aoyear1 #aoyear3 #homeschooling #windsorandnewton #watercolor

Beautiful shot of pickerelweed (Pontederia cordata) from the Shark Valley region of the Everglades! This plant can be found anywhere in wetlands from eastern Canada all the way south to Argentina! See if you can find it in a local wetland near you. .. .. .. #conservationinsight #pickerelweed #pontederiacordata #pontederia #wildflowers #flower #wetlands #marsh #cordgrass #wetmarsh

The pickerel weed is blooming in the wetlands. Luckily it's a native species! Beyond its visual allure, pickerel weed serves an important ecological purpose. The submerged portion, as with all aquatic plants, provides a habitat for the micro- and macro invertebrates that ultimately become a food source for fish, amphibians, ducks, and reptiles. Additionally, as aquatic plants die and decompose, bacteria and fungi break down the plant matter; the resulting detritus is food for many aquatic invertebrates. On top of that, the flowers are known to attract butterflies and the seeds are a tasty treat for ducks. . . @bbcearth #earthfocus #gardening #aquascape #exploreflorida #roamflorida #iloveflorida #therealflorida #pickerelweed #wildflowers #floridaflora #purpleflowers #naturephotography #onlyinflorida #floridanative #floridanature #lakeapopkawildlifedrive

Happy Earth Day! This Rusty Patched Bumblebee in one of many species listed at risk in Ontario. With the theme this year for earth day being, Protect Our Species, I encourage everyone to check out the list at Ontario.ca and see how you can help one species on the list this year. For native bees you can drill holes into dead trees and wood items to help create nests for them (since they are often solitary and don't build hives) 🐝🌱🌻🍁🌎 #ourstoprotect And this piece will be available on Saturday at the Algonquin Public School Spring Fair 🌷

While some photos come out stunning, it’s inevitable that others don’t quite make the cut despite being beautiful in their own ways. These are a few from my last adventure down south that ended up having flaws for one reason or another. After going back through them I’m reminded of the abundance of life even in the smallest corners of #bigcypressnationalpreserve and the #evergladesnationalpark that managed to pop up in these duds. They’re not the prettiest photos but if you looks closely you’ll see a few critters & creeping plants🌿
