article: Five Simple Ways to Create Habitat this Fall (Davis Mizejewski and Mary Phillips/National Wildlife Federation). All good ideas.
2-min video: Hands of Sicily (Marko Roth/Vimeo). A meditation on place through hands in motion.
article with photos: Native Plant Gardens: Encouraging Volunteers! (Nuts for Natives). Free plants! Do you know which of your plants are the most prolific self-sowers, and do you know what your seedlings look like?
images: “What is the natural enemy of a duck?” …and other questions in need of an answer (Shaun Usher/Letters of Note). “A decade ago, staff at the New York Public Library unearthed an old box of cards, each one bearing a question from an extremely offline member of the public—questions people actually took the time to ask a librarian either in person or over the telephone.” Here are 20+ such questions, originally posted at the NY Public Library Instagram account. No answers, but of course you could, maybe?, Google that. (My favourite: “Why do 18th century English paintings have so many squirrels in them, and how did they tame them so that they wouldn’t bite the painter?”)
1-min video: GYM BAIT (Sam H. Buchanan/Vimeo). You won’t regret it.
