Sketching in the Field.... or Forest

Last Friday, my co-worker/naturalist, Kristen Marshall Mattson and I led a nature journaling workshop for members of Spring Island, South Carolina.  What a great way to start the day!   Walking through the woods, examining plants, sketching our finds, adding details, learning new things both art and nature related.  YUM! None of us wanted it to end :)

Did you know.....
White flowers are pollinated by moths? (the flowers show up better at night)
The purple flowers of wild ginger is pollinated by beetles?
That a hollow tree can still live and thrive as long as the outer 'living shell' is not compromised?

  2. I didn't know white flowers are pollinated by moths … at least many are. And I did know a living tree can have a lot hollowed out. I used to be able to get inside an big old elm when I was a child … and I know black bears sometimes find a good hollow tree.
