We set out to see what nature treasures we might bring home on the bottom of our feet. (I got this idea from Cindy over at Westward a few months ago.)
A few things we saw along the way...
Four baby robins in one of our neighbor's trees. They're about ready to fly any day now...I'm really hoping we'll be outside and see them when they fledge. Brings back a cherished memory from last spring.
Some wildflowers and lots of dandelions. I love how children see dandelions as being just as beautiful as other flowers. I happen to agree!
Acorns are always a treasured find.
An interesting family of mushrooms that I have not been able to identify yet. Any ideas?
So what did we track home? A few dandelion seeds, some grass seed that Daddy planted last week, and lots of dirt. The grass was really wet from a rainshower the night before. I think we will bring home a wider variety of things if we try this when it's dry. We had so much fun traipsing around in our sockfeet...I'm sure we'll do it again soon.
