How does one define July?
The wheat comes off, the corn is getting high, the nestlings have fledged, the sun lingers, the breeze rolls through the fields. July is the month where things can just grow, crops are in but growing, animals have had their young and they grow.
Sitting pond side you can spend hours watching the dragonflies zip through the air, the rushes, sedges, and grass all swaying in the breeze, little concern is given this month for there's not much work to be done.
Since 2015 we have been exploring and sharing all the amazing things we’ve found in nature.
