  1. I love the many shades of green in my garden. It soothes me. And I’ve added a few chicks to raise the spice level! They’re now about a week old, raising them in the house to be sweet – I’m mama. They are so entertaining, and my dog herds them a little. BTW, I went to Arenal Observatory Lodge & had Nestor guide me: two trogon species and a flock of 6 aracaris! It’s a great place, but when I return I’ll get #29. First floor had overhead noise.

    1. Deborah, I’m so glad you enjoy your gardens like I do and that you got to have Nestor as a guide at Arenal Observatory! He is good and I’ve used him twice for both on-campus and off-campus. The Observatory is still one of my favorite places and Room #29 too! 🙂

    1. Mary, so true! And different forests and different times of the year give even more shades of green! Since I’m reading The Lord of the Rings books now, I must add a Tolkien quote 🙂 :

      “For still there are so many things that I have never seen: in every wood in every spring there is a different green.” – J. R. R. Tolkien
