Spring Smell Project

May 10

alium

It is very well known to you by now that I am conducting
a serious, smell research project. Today, I compared the Tulip,
Daffodil, and Alium.

It was not easy to decide which flower smells the best.
After several samples I have smelled, several sneezes, and a
runny nose I can announce that all three flowers are very pretty.
But the more important news is I am pleased to announce I have ranked the flowers by smell.

A. The Daffodil by itself is hard to smell.
B. The Tulip does not smell at all by itself either.
C.. Alium does not smell, but if you accidentally step on one
and crush it, when you are avoiding a certain Red Squirrel,
you will notice that the smell is not so great.

THE RESULTS OF THE SMELL RESEARCH
1. Daffodil – ranks OKAY
2. Tulip – ranks OKAY
3. Alium – YUCK!

Thank you.  Please Enjoy.

My Sweet Little Blue Bird

Apr 10

At night I open the the shades in my bedroom window and look up
into the sky. The sky is so dark, like my old home Tuvalu, and
so filled with millions and millions of stars, and planets.
The same stars and planets shine in the sky in Tuvalu and in
Wisconsin.

I listen at night on my radio to my favorite show.
Tonight I heard a great song for SPRING, “My Sweet Little Blue
Bird Girl.” I don’t remember the name of the singer but I liked
the song because it reminded me that it is SPRING!!

My Gaylord Nelson report

Apr 20

Dear Diary, today in class I presented my report on my hero Gaylord Nelson the founder of Earth Day, and a Wisconsin native. As you know Earth Day is in just two days!! I can’t wait!! The chickens and I are looking for creative ways to upcycle old things we found in one of the barns. One idea Ophelia had was to make an old horse yoke, collar into a stick. She said you could use the yoke to point at things. Horace the muskrat said Ophelia’s idea was not her best effort to date. Horace frowned briefly, and said the horse yoke would be better as a post for a mailbox or part of a fence.

I am just glad Ophelia and Horace are speaking to each other again after some (domesticated bird to remain nameless) burned the green bean casserole. The casserole was for the dinner when we were hosting the honorable Tamshing the Binturong from Bhutan. He came to Kickapoo Valley to speak about Bhutan’s Gross National Happiness index at our Earth Day conference held in Ironwood log #12.

What is a Binturong? A binturong is also known as the Asian bearcat, but is not a bear, can climb trees and looks more like a cat.

My ducks plant vegetables

Toy duck planters

Seed planting toy ducks

Today, I am planting the seeds of native vegetable and fruit plants. My dad made me these special, toy ducks out of barn wood for planting seeds. They are five, cute yellow ducks in two rows! When I pull the wooden ducks they dig the dirt, plant and then cover the seeds with soil in my beautiful vegetable garden.
