Answer to Monday's Riddle!

Wow! You guys all guessed great! This week, we will be taking some time to explore the endless adventures found in one of the grandest, natural occurrences on Earth. Tomorrow, Lizzy is reviewing a new book that ties into this theme, and we can't wait to share our thoughts about it with you. Friday, we will be hosting a special interview, where we will be chatting with Polly Shulman, author of the middle grade novel, The Grimm Legacy. - so be sure to check back! ~ F


I am a place of pure, natural beauty, where people can feel their ultimate duty. In the wake of disorder, comes miraculous scenes, all co-existing in the colors of dreams. Bringing clean air and a bounty of food, my settings will shift by the tone of Earth's mood. Deciduous turns, while coniferous stays, hence a vast arena of many different ways. A lively canopy covers it all, whether it be summer or winter, spring or fall. Choose a path, and walk by my stones. Breath me in deep while you rest your bones. 

Where are you?  Answer: A Forest



Vernal pond, Bear Mountain Park- New Fairfield
Can you count the peeper frogs?

Same pond. It's amazing the things you can find in the forest.
 I love this picture! How many peepers do you see now? lol!

  13. I also love the frogs. I imagine everyone got the riddle because of "deciduous" and "coniferous." They sort of narrowed down the field of choices. :-)
