Butterfly Garden Needs Water!

P1000081-1   The Butterfly Garden at the CF needs volunteers to bring gallon jugs of water to the rain barrels behind the bench.

  I am told that a gallon jug of water weighs eight pounds or so, so the best way to do this is to bring two jugs filled with water at home, park at the end of Green Way and carry a gallon jug in each hand to the rain barrels.

  The Butterfly Gardeners do a great job for all of us.

   Many hands makes for light work. Thanks!

Download Your Own 'Ducks of the Celery Farm'

Ducks of cfJerry Barrack has done some really beautiful limited-edition photography books that are hard to get.

To ease the problem, Jerry has made free eBook editions for folks to download onto their iPads.

Today, I'm posting the link to download his wonderful  "Ducks of the Celery Farm."

Folks who were lucky enough to see Jerry's talk and slide show last night got a sample of some of the great photography in the book.

The eBook link includes a 45-page preview -- well worth a look.  (Link is here.)

Tomorrow,  I'll post a link to download Jerry's "Birds of Western Florida."

(Thanks, Jerry!)
