It's charming to think of any children keeping such records nowadays, what with all the electronic timewasters that keep them inside (and adults; here I am, blogging). But I think fostering a connection to the outdoors is exactly what children need, and if the practice of phenology gets them there, that's wonderful.

Thanks for an interesting post.


I do know I am probably delusional since I keep thinking about the kids I know — whose parents are nature nuts, gardeners etc. and so their children actually do pay attention to such things. But I am afraid they are the exception. The rest, as you say, are on the computer like us!
