I was trying to take a picture of the quilt on the barn.....
These were cones on the contorted blue spruce (this I would never have known if Landis didn't have it on their facebook page). The cones were magenta! They were really neat!!
Then we went off into the woods to see what we could find without labels on things. One of the first things we heard when we entered the wooded area was a barred owl! We stayed very quiet for a bit but he only called onec. Maddie did really well she kept saying "Oh! This is a ______, Here is how I know!" I was having her practice explaining to us how to identify the tree so she has it in mind when she has a gaggle of 7-9 year olds in tow.

|There is a bluebird on the left side of this sculpture. Maddie snuck up taking photos!|
When we got back to the parking lot 2 ladies were all set up painting. We stopped to talk to them for a minute and one asked Maddie if she could see her bluebird photo. It was too hard to see on the small screen in the sun though. We enjoyed their paintings!!
We will be going back here again and again this summer I think! Maddie wants to keep practicing and its a good spot for that.
