For those of you who are into nature journaling, here is something else I enjoy doing: Making a picture map of my favorite places. It’s amazing how a simple map like this, without a whole lot of drawing skills, can bring back a place during the dreary winter months. I make notations of the plants and insect life and wild life I may have seen. In this instance I found a sun-bleached cow skeleton and dragged part of it home for future reference. I must draw that some time. It’s mainly a jaw bone and the whole backbone and would make a good “a la O’Keeffe” picture.
