AUGUST 2010 NEWS LETTER
We must be doing something right; all of our bird houses are occupied. Even with the recession not a one is empty. The carousel restaurant down at the Circle Garden is a favorite of the young cardinal crowd. They serve meat loaf seed every Monday night. And where does a bird go for some liquid refreshment? Try the “Wet Your Beak Water Hole” with chirpyoke every other night.
Don’t go away,we have something we want to share with you:
Nancy Hammeke Marshall, Executive Director of the Abington Free Library and the Board of Trustees have chosen to acknow-
ledge MBS for receiving the 2010 Montgomery Award by having a book, “Green Planet” by Stanley A. Rice, placed in the library’s permanent collection with a book plate honoring MBS in the front of the book.
This is without a doubt a great honor and we thank Nancy and the Trustees for this gift.
Jessica of “Jessica’s Point of View” column is 6 years old and because of her interest in art requested an interview with me, Iris Innes, as an artist.
Dear Miss Iris:
These are my questions:
Q: Is it fun to be a nature artist?
A: I would say ‘yes’. It makes me happy.
Q: Do you like it?
A; I like being out of doors, walking in the woods especially in the
Spring when all the woodsy plants are popping up and the birds
Are all around.
Q: What is your favorite thing to draw?
A: I like to draw woodland plants, jack-in-the-pulpits, ferns and
Birds. Get Mom and Dad to take you to Briar Bush Nature
Center at 1212 Edgehill Rd. in Abington. Go to the Bird
Observatory Building and see the front door that I have painted.
Q: How can kids become “nature artists”?
A: Draw everything you see. Get a camera and photograph little
Thank you, Jessica for giving me the opportunity to talk to you about your interest in being an artist.
If there are any young, budding artists out there in any field that would like to respond to Jessica with questions of their own, please go to ynys@comcast .net
Thanks again for stopping by and don’t forget to come again-from all of us at MBS.
