It's time for a Field Day! And I cordially invite you to join us ...
Let's celebrate these final weeks of late spring, and share the world of nature around us. What's happening in the garden, woods, fields, by the pond or the shore? How about through your windows or just a step or two outside your back door? Nature happens everywhere, in ways big and little. What does late spring look like where you live? I hope you will consider telling us, for our next Field Day will run on Thursday, June 7th, rain or shine!
And just what is a Field Day you might ask? :)
Field Day is a nature-themed blog carnival. A carnival is a blogging event in which a host or hostess collects information about a particular theme (in this case nature) from other bloggers (and sometimes non-bloggers). She then organizes the information - links and photos, etc. - into one big post to share with everyone who stops by her blog on that day. It's a lot of fun - and the more the merrier - so I do hope you'll consider participating!
Your submission can be as simple as a photo, or as lengthy as a detailed post. And if you don't have a blog, you are still more than welcome! Perhaps you have a photo to share, or some thoughts you might like to write up?
Here are some ideas to get you started. You might share:
- a review of a great gardening book
- what's in your spring storybook basket
- photos of spring in your yard
- your nature study plans for the summer
- a trip to a farm, a pond or anywhere you've noticed nature
- a list of birds, bugs or mammals you've seen in recent weeks
- a spring poem
For more ideas, you could peruse past issues of Field Day:
- Early Spring 2007
- Late Winter 2007
- Late Autumn 2006
- Early Autumn 2006
- Late Summer 2006
- Early Summer 2006
Also, I will be posting more of my Everyday Nature posts over the next couple of weeks, and some book reviews, too.
Now, the nitty gritty - what I need with your submission:
- your name
- your e-mail (not to be published)
- your blog address
- your post URL
- a brief summary of your post or photo/entry
Please send all submissions to me at drhanigan AT verizon DOT net. Leave a comment below, too, if you'd like. I would like to have all entries by the end of the day, Wednesday June 6th.
And I'd love help spreading the word! Please copy the Field Day button at the top of this post and feel free to use it with your post or on your sidebar. (Thanks to my dear husband for designing this latest button!)
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you soon! Enjoy this beautiful spring day. :)
