I am sitting here in the greatroom at my laptop listening to the birds sing and feeling the cool (yes - cool in July) breezes on this great morning in July. The carpenter is upstairs working on the renovation (more on that later!) and I thought about a great book that everyone who is interested in the environment should read. It is called Bringing Nature Home by Doug Tallamy, a professor of entomology at the University of Delaware. I have known Dr. Tallamy for several years and have watched him working on the research for this great book. It is eye-opening in what it has to say about what we are doing to our environment. We here in suburbia can do a lot to save our native wildlife from extinction by just understanding the importance of what we plant to what we reap in the future!
Read it and you will never look at huge open perfectly manicured lawns in the same way again!
More later on the "Great Renovation". Stay tuned....
And another Edward Tulane! ♥
