Following the Seasons of Earth is at the heart of my blog.  We are in tune with the rhythms of the Earth; we just have to stop and rejoin the flow of life.

All organisms on Earth need to be within the flow of life on Earth to survive. We need to know what “time” it is. As human we need to know the timing in the spring of planting our crops and when our crops will be ripe enough to eat.

The following links lead to past posts on this blog focusing on seasonal events.

Winter is a mystery to many of us.  Basically, because we try to stay inside and keep warm. Studying ecology and natural history in bitter cold in not something most of us want to do.

But winter is a great tie to study ecology. The stillness of the air, the quiet, the lack of insects buzzing in your ear or sucking your blood (female mosquitoes), make it easier to focus and not be distracted.

Collected below are pages from In Season which focus on nature in winter.
