Hurricane Discoveries

September 11, 2008

Since Hurricane Gustav we have been finding lots of interesting things on our walks. The biggest discovery was this drawer (above) which has turned out to be a great little nature box because of its clear bottom. Our finds include two different types of hawk moths, one cicada, a beautiful bird's nest, large mushroom, rocks, pine needles, and several large green acorns. There are so many green acorns and pecans all over the ground as a result of the wind...poor squirrels might be hungrier this winter as a result of this hurricane season (or maybe they are thrilled, do they like the green acorns?). We are now preparing for Hurricane Ike and hoping it doesn't cause too much destruction (and really hoping we don't lose electricity again!).

Your idea for using that drawer you found is so uplifting. It is a gorgeous nature collection. Thanks for sharing the photo and the story of how it came to be.
