Rick Bramwell: Something for everyone at the State Fair


I’ve often said that blue jays get in their scolding mood, come fall. Now, I’m wondering if this is just triggered by the temperature. I’ve been scolded a lot this week.

I’ve been on the watch for the monarch butterfly. Their larva attach to the milk weed. When the butterfly emerges from the cocoon, they feed on flower pollen. I’ve yet to see the cocoons, but began seeing the butterflies Monday.

Rick Bramwell’s column appears Thursdays in The Herald Bulletin.
