My Daily Blog for 2018 July / Siloi: Daily Blog   

        This month of July 2018, I ate edible wild native plants, such as the Bee Balm flower petals.  My spring nature classes finished in May, my fall nature classes start in September. But, in July, I volunteered taught a nature class at a summer camp, Camp Hazelhurst, in Harbert, Michigan.  In July, for my ecological restoration work, some of it included planting native plants at a naturalized residential yard; plus, I sicklebar mowed an aggressive grass at a prairie. My blog shows several July blooming prairie flowers, including Black-eyed Susan, Butterfly Milkweed, Rattlesnake Master, and Queen of the Prairie.  I even have a photo of the plant that has the world's smallest flower!  There are photos of animals in the great outdoors too, including a dragonfly, a caterpillar, blinky butts, a frog, a mommy and baby deer, and birds.  Furthermore, July is part of the beach season, there are Lake Michigan beach photos too.

        This month of June 2018, I ate edible wild native plants, such as the Juneberry fruit and the Elderberry flowers.  For landscape architecture, in June, I met with Jody to discuss her permaculture farm, design plans, and site details.  My spring nature classes finished in May, my fall nature classes start in September.  In June, for my ecological restoration work, I worked on prairies, removing invasive exotic weeds. My blog shows several June blooming prairie flowers.  Plus, in a prairie, in a bird nest box, I saw baby bluebirds, the day they hatched and as they are growing. There's even a photo of a snapping turtle, that wandered into a laundromat.

        This month of May 2018, I finished up teaching the my spring semester classes: "Nature and the Community Arts," and "Wilderness and Culture," at Fernwood Gardens and Benton Harbor.  On daily blog, see photos of nature classes activities.  For my ecological restoration work, I worked on spreading native prairie flower seeds onto prairies. The permaculture farm is slowly but surely moving forward, still in the planning stages in May 2018, but construction will begin in a few months.  Plus, the month of May photos exhibit several spring flowers budding and blooming.
