The Fruit of Blogging and Nature Studies


People question why I love to blog often. I respond that I love the social interaction, on line and in person. I love having a record of what we are doing. So far, everyone I have met because of this blog has been a blessing to my life.

One fun encounter was with Jeanne de Sainte Marie. She is an illustrator on the iPad poetry interactive project – A Word’s a Bird. She was researching cattails and came across my blog.  We interacted via email asking and answering questions about the seasonal studies we had completed.  She wanted an authentic account for a year round cattail study.

She just emailed me to let me know the app is ready!! It launched on May 16th, 2013. If you peek on their Facebook photo and iTunes photo, you’ll see the cattails drawn out. 

Call me a nut, but this is about the most thrilling thing ever on a foggy rainy Tuesday afternoon. or Any afternoon. There are cattails on the Facebook photo and on the iTunes photo!

iTunes for iPad 2 and above: A Word’s a Bird

If you have an iPod 2 or above, I think this is just about the best $2.99 you can spend!

I am not an affiliate, I did  not review the app, I have not had access to it since I do not have an iPad. I just wanted to share it with you all. If you have time to download it and post a review – she’d appreciate it!
