A reply to a friend (not a LetterMo participant, but she’s replied to all my cards and letters this month) — my first printing of a note card with a photo of a spirited little snapping turtle hatchling I carried across our busy road to the lake last summer. A note to the tweenage son of a friend, a card with nice illustrations of four different beetles, enthusing about the incredible color, size and shape variations in beetles and telling him how excited I am that spring is on the way and my citizen science projects will be starting up again. Another copy of the turtle card, sent to my brother and sister-in-law in Australia (my first time using the new round international-mail stamp, about which I’m ridiculously excited).
