I was greeted this morning by a very large dragonfly tapping on my office window. It hovered there just long enough for me to get a close look at it's blue face and watch it's helicopter wings vibrate.
Ahhh...to be a dragonfly! What a perfect summer day to flit and float and fly around!
After so many days of that weather that shall not be named, it is a treat to see BLUE sky!
Come to Cantigny this afternoon and enjoy it with me! Today at 1:00 we are hosting the first Wild Wednesday of the summer. Stop the presses, we are making paper!
We will use shredded newspaper and bits of plant material to craft circles of handmade paper. This is a hands-on experience geared towards children ages 3-10. And yahoo!- it's free to all park visitors- once you've paid the $5 parking fee, that is.
We'll be outside the new Outdoor Education Center...see you there! Just follow the dragonflies!
In case you don't trust insects to give you accurate directions...Cantigny is located at 1 S 151 Winfield Road, in Wheaton, Illinois.
