Nature walk...through the nursery?

On Friday afternoon, Punky & I met some friends at a frozen yogurt bar.  (First of all, not that I'm complaining, but what's up with all of the froyo bars all of a sudden?!)  After our treats we made a spur of the moment decision to head next door to the local nursery.  I know...a wild Friday afternoon!

The plan was to stroll through looking at the flowers, enjoying a cloud-cooled Texas afternoon.  About 30 seconds into our trip the two little girls began collecting treasures.  They were picking up petals, buds and leaves that had fallen to the ground.

Just ten minutes later my hands were full of treasures!  Punky was so excited to go home and show Daddio her loot.  It was like Halloween...with a nature twist!

Daddio checks out Punky's new stash of treasures!

Sorting in an egg crate.

Plucking dry berries from a stem.

Feeling the texture of the leaf (this one was green & velvety on one side, and slick & purple on the other)

Sorting in progress!  We may need more egg crates!

Coming soon: nature fun with the light box!
