Gardens of the Spirit Calendar
With evocative photographs of Japanese gardens and thoughtful words to live by from garden author Maggie Oster (NGA's regional editor from the Upper South region), the Gardens of the Spirit calendar above my desk makes me pause when I sit down each morning. If only I could climb into the scenes. Check it out at: http://www.amberlotus.com/08gs.html.
What's That Bug?
Even if you aren't searching for info about a particular insect (or arachnid), this What's That Bug site is worth a visit for the amazing photos and bug stories. You can send an insect photo and get help identifying it, search under a specific type of insect, or browse the files. The "Worst Bug Story Ever" entries will get your skin crawling.
