Northern Spring Peepers

#‎NatureNugget‬: Found in wooded areas and grassy lowlands near ponds and swamps across Ohio, northern spring peppers are tiny, well-camouflaged amphibians rarely seen. In fact, peepers are so small that they can sit comfortably on a dime! You can, and most likely have heard peepers’ shrill, birdlike peeps, or whistles.

Take a listen to spring peepers’ songs: http://ow.ly/ZG2GH

Make Space for What’s to Come

By Kristy Belaney

It has been far too long since I have written on this blog. Life has been, well, life. It is amazing to me how much I continue to learn, to grow, to change. Everything we come to know evolves continuously and no matter how hard we try to hold on to certain moments, it is simply not humanly possible. When we are finally able to accept that, what follows is the closest thing to peace we can have on this earth. http://noddingoniongardens.blogspot.com
