The leaves have all fallen and as the nights drop below freezing Thimble and Blossom are continuing on their journey south for the winter. Although they enjoy a few frosty mornings, they’re ready to bask in the warm sun rays again. But, before they left they made sure to write back to all of your wonderful nature questions!

North Country Wild, a new Nature up North blog, is coming soon.

Exciting news from the forests! Thimble and Blossom, our favorite migratory fairy naturalists, are back in the North Country! In the fall they like to take a break from flying and glide around on falling leaves, forage for berries and seeds with chipmunks, and enjoy a warm cup of acorn soup! Through all of their woodland travels they’ve become excellent naturalists, and are now here to answer any questions you may have!
