Here are three things still hanging around Vermont this winter. Name them and be eligible to win $5 off any of my outings or workshops. Please enter in the comments section below. I’ll choose a winner at random in a day or two. Don’t forget the “Creative But Wrong” category.
March 14: We have a winner! Selected at random, Brian Parson correctly identified these hanging things as: the empty husk (involucre) of an American Beech fruit, a Promethea Moth cocoon (with the pupa still in there), and a precious Beaked Hazelnut fruit (spared from the squirrels). Way to go, Brian! This challenge was tougher than most, with only two of you getting all three correct and a few others getting two out of three. Nice work!
The observant Judy Brook wins the “Creative But Incorrect” category, with this wonderful bit of whimsy:
#1 are two aging Pac Man icons; #2 is a joint poorly rolled by a Vermonter wearing mittens; #3 shows the front claws and fur insulated balls of the illusive arctic crab.
