12 Months On

One of the things I most enjoy about my Fifteen Acres blog is the communication with people who are interested in nature and who enjoy sharing flora and fauna finds – both on my site, and on their own.  For those long term followers who must wonder where I have been, I want to write about the previous 12 months…
