No Insectinction! — Crafty Green Poet

I have followed the blog of Juliet Wilson (aka Crafty Green Poet) for some time now. Juliet is multi-talented: she writes poetry, is a skilled artisan, and is a devoted environmentalist. What I enjoy most about Juliet’s blog is the passion she brings to what she does, whether documenting a walk she has taken, writing a book review, or advocating on behalf of the environment.

Recently, she wrote a piece titled, “No Insectinction!” I asked for, and she graciously granted permission to share her blog. You can read the blog’s beginning below. If you click on “No Insectinction,” in the excerpt, it will take you to Juliet’s site where you can read the entire piece.

You can find more of Juliet’s writing, as well as follow her, at
