Finding Science Everywhere

My mom spent two weeks in a nursing home rehab in St. Louis because of a fall and some other health issues. I spent five days there with her. The weather was perfect and we spent as much time as possible in the courtyard. It was amazing what we discovered as we sat there chatting and enjoying the sunshine.

The baby mourning doves in the photo below were just about to leave the nest.

The courtyard is filled with tortoises. Someone brought in a pair a few years ago and they have reproduced. They burrow underground during the winters.

Mom loved this statue!

These birds were in a habitat in the activity room.

We attended “wheelchair church” one Sunday afternoon.There is nothing like the old hymns!
