In my Nature Notebook...
The roadsides are completely yellow this week with a flower I thought (without my glasses and from the car!) was "Butter and Eggs," a sweet flower with a little smile and "mouth" like a minuture Snap Dragon but no--this is "Birdsfoot Treefoil or Lotus Carniculatus a member of the bean family (a legume?) likely first introduced as fodder for cattle and now quite invasive. But it looks very cheery and beautiful.

Oh, Glory. I didn't mean to take credit for this beautiful illustration. It's not mine. I just admire it. (I will fix this right away!) When i do paint, it is not like this, but i love to do it anyway. Truth to tell, i do use dry brush and inexpensive watercolors but sometimes I use watercolor pencils too. They blend really well and are easy to control.

The notebook entries represented here are all selected from things actually lived and noted on paper in an effort to live the full life British educator Charlotte Mason so ably championed.
