A nature walk…brrr!

Posted on: March 31, 2009

I had promised the kids a nature walk since the temperature was acceptable but the sun never showed and the wind was cold.

They were really excited so we bundled up and headed outdoors for some rock collecting. I was thrilled to see some signs of spring. This winter has seemed to be never-ending and I know there are others who feel this way too.

And, like I mentioned in my last post (probably the one that got deleted) we finally have space to set up a small nature table since Hammy passed on.

Here are some pics of the nature table.

That clay bowl is the one I made back a long time ago. I hadn’t posted pics before because I hadn’t glazed it yet but oh well…maybe another day.

I’m so glad you were able to get out for a walk. It wasn’t as warm and bright as the last few days but man is it nice to not have to worry about ice quite so much. Your nature table/family wall is looking great and I think it’s especially fitting that you have your bowl there.
