A Look Behind and a Look Ahead

2015 looks to be an interesting year.  I've passed my exam and will be a docent at the Albuquerque Botanical Garden.  Besides hanging out in a beautiful garden, giving tours to interested visitors, and answering questions from my decades-old obsolete knowledge of botany, I'll be photo-sphering winter and spring.  That will eventually complete my Four Seasons project that I started in July.  Here are links to the late summer photo-sphere constellation and the fall garden tour as well.  

The folks at the Garden have already reached out and tagged me for their work with the U.S. National Phenology Network. The Bot. Gard. is part of the Rio Grande Phenology Trail.  This should be an interesting expansion of my observations of the box turtles in the back yard. 

In fact, now would be a good time to summarize last summer's weights.  This year Trudy was out and about by March 5 and I last saw her underground by the east gate on September 26. 

At any rate, this year looks to have lots of opportunities for blogging about our natural environment.  Stay tuned for a year in the Garden.
