For the past couple of years my grand mom has asked me if I wanted to participate in “Philly cares”, which is a community. My grand mom and my aunt participate through their workplace. This year was the first time I was actually able to do it and I am so glad that I got the chance.
There is a local orchard called Highlands Orchards where you can go to pick your own fruit. Jane and I went there and picked our own peaches. That was the first time I actually saw fruit on a tree. I know that’s pretty sad since I am 21 but it was very cool. It was even more fun to go from tree to tree and decide what peaches we wanted to take. It was great knowing that the peaches we would be eating later on in the year were handpicked by us.
On the car ride back Heather had an interesting experience with Buddy. Heather and Buddy were sitting in the very back of the van when Buddy started getting a little rowdy. He scraped at the door and seemed to be uncomfortable. We thought he was upset about leaving his previous owner but then we quickly realized it was something else. Before we knew it Heather screamed “he just threw up all over!”
This day turned out to be very successful, we got many great pictures. Springton Manor is a very interesting place to visit, especially in the summer. The butterfly house is very fun and unigue. The best part about this is…it’s free! Can’t beat that!
Among his raptors are a Golden Eagle, Barn Owls, American Kestrel, Harris’s Hawk, Peregrine Falcon, Barred Owl, a Spectacled Owl, and an Eastern Screech Owl. I am sure he has even more birds then that.
I’m a lucky girl. Over Thanksgiving break, I had the opportunity to go to England with Jane and Rob. I was even able to bring my best friend Jenny.
The hotel itself looks sort of like a castle, with a huge tower made of stone walls…
Caterpillars only do two things- they eat and poop, a lot. As they eat they grow bigger and need new skin so they molt (shed their skin) and they sometimes change colors after molting.
At first we tried to catch some turtles but every time they saw us coming they scurried into the water. Next we made a couple of attempts to catch a frog but they all jumped away from us. Until finally the Frog Wrangler (AKA me) caught a frog rather easily. I did it with a butterfly net.
