Wild food is rather behind, with all the chilly weather, this year. We'll try again in a couple of weeks and see what else we can gather.
...and we went home with flowers in our hair...
(which appeared there while climbing around in a wild plum)
One beautiful part of this is that it the following were the only input from me:
"Mama, Where's the exact other side of the world?"
"I don't know; maybe Australia. You'll have to check your globe."
"Mama, can we bring the big first aid kit?"
"No; please don't."
|Today we went exploring Killarney Creek.|
|Sarra found a Red-Legged Frog (blue-listed, but abundant in this area)|
|Tal still puzzling over the placement of fawn-vertebrae; Sarra learning how to hold a frog.|
|We found a little sinkhole near the creek, and measured its depth (with varying results, depending how far the kids stuck the stick into the mud at the bottom).|
|One of the earth's greatest puzzles: scattered bones! These are the bones of a young deer.|
|We accidentally frightened a wren from its nest-building.|
