30 x 30 Challenge – Days 13 – 15

Day 13 – Once again in Philly, once again stuck in a meeting room all day – this time on the Temple University campus.  But the timing worked so that I could find a nice green spot to hang out for 45minutes before my train home.  The problem with my first choice of spots was that the initially, very cute squirrels multiplied and became 4 squirrels seemingly on the attack!  Not only did they have no fear of my presence, they literally blocked my path and came up to within 1 foot of me before I hightailed it out of that cute little garden.  But it did not end there, they followed me out, how creepy is that?!  So, my feeling is – a little scared but quite amused.

Day 14 – Garden time!  I spent some early nature time taking care of my fall vegetable garden.  The plants are still babies, but growing well:  broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, carrots and onions.  The onions won’t be ready til next year.  It is always a surprise with the broccoli and cauliflower as to whether I will get heads or not, at this point the plants look really healthy at least.

Day 15 – I enjoyed a longer walk along the Wilmington Riverfront today.  Lots of birds!  Below is a pick of one that did not seem worried by my presence.  I also was able to spend some time amidst greenery on the Penn campus – even got to hang out with Ben Franklin for a bit. 🙂
