  1. I am sitting here with a glass of chamomile, lemon mint, lavender iced tea reading this post while cooling down from a dog walk. The cicadas whir in the distance, bees are gathering nectar and pollen from the clover in my yard, and the breeze attempts to keeps us cool. What a lovely looking book. Would be great for Wee naturalist programs, the school and public library.
