Spring Pickin’s

Photo & Design by Donaville Herrick

Now that Spring is finally upon us (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, that is), I wanted to introduce a new project called Spring Pickin’s.

From now until the end of spring, I will be picking up various things nature has decided to drop in my path. Some of what I find might be on a nature walk, or at the grocery store parking lot, or in my own backyard. On the 19th of each month, I’ll be posting updates of my Spring Pickin’s on the blog and highlighting anyone else who wants to play along.

Care to join me?

Here’s what to do:

  • Blog about Spring Pickin’s¬†with a link back to this post and update your own blog with photos of what nature leaves behind in your neck of the woods.
  • Leave a comment with a link to your blog post so I can add you to the participants list.
  • If you don’t have a blog, feel free to email me photos of your Spring Pickin’s at info@dearestnature.com and be sure to include your full name (or at least first name and last initial)
  • Note: you don’t have to be a professional photographer to participate, you can snap photos with your iphone, too.

Spread the word! Grab any of the badges below and display it on your site or blog.

  4. Glad there is not a dead line. Montana weather is crazy but ilove it no tornados or hurricanes.

  5. @Emily: it’s the quotation marks that are causing the problem – you can just manually edit it and it should work fine after. :)
