Happy Spring Wisconsin!

Mar 27

springishereToday the sun was out! The snow is melting off our roof and dripping on to our porch. We have a lot of snow around the Kickapoo Valley, so I can still use my snow
shoes.

I don’t want to forget to tell you that I am growing snow peas, lettuce, and tomatoes in my hoop houses! I am also building a terrarium that people can put on their bikes.

But the most important thing to report is Spring is here, and the Red wing Blackbirds have returned too!

Today I went up the hill behind our house and looked at Asimina my favorite tree in the whole world. She is so beautiful every season. I imagined it was Summer and I was visiting her,
with Myles, and my forest friends. I imagined she had Paw Paw fruit in her branches and that we would be bringing the harvest to our house.

Valentine’s Day ice hearts

Jan 17

Today my friends surprised me! After school they led me up the hill back behind my house. And there for my eyes to see was beautiful Asmina the Paw Paw tree with pretty pink hearts made from ice hanging from her branches. My forest friends all screamed at once Happy Valentine’s Day Beatrice! I didn’t want to ruin their surprise and tell them that Valentine’s Day is on February 14th not today. I think they want Asimina to look pretty all winter with the pink ice hearts.

My forest friends made the cute hearts by freezing water and cherry juice (from a Wisconsin orchard) in old, tin butter molds shaped like hearts they got from Virgina’s Attic an antique store owned by three wonderful woodchucks.

Reading to my favorite tree

Jul 01

Reading to my favorite treeI like Summer because I have more time to read to Asimina. Asimina is a beautiful Paw Paw tree on a small hill near my house. When I go to read to her my friends come with me to listen to the story. Asimina has big pretty flowers that later in the Summer turn into delicious fruit that tastes like mangoes, and bananas, and pineapple. We plant the seeds from the Paw Paw fruits to grow new Paw Paw trees that is also why we love Asimina so much.

Visiting bats at night!

May 05

missing post from mishap may 5 When it is night time, my friend Jazzbat and his family fly through the sky searching for insects to eat. If I finish my homework early, my mom and dad let me go outside at night and visit Jazzbat. He wears a black beret when I see him hanging from one of Asmina’s branches. Jazzbat of course listens to jazz music so my mom and dad bought some old jazz records from the antique store for me to give as a present.

Jazzbat is a Pipistrelle, more information about him and his family:

My Paw Paw tree friend

Paw Paw TreeAfter school I went up the hill behind our house to visit the Paw Paw tree. She is so pretty in the winter covered with snow. Her name is Asimina! I read her a story that I wrote about Tuvalu and Wisconsin. I told her that she would love to meet all the beautiful trees in Tuvalu and that she reminds our family of home.
