Sometimes I think we're at a nature disadvantage living in suburbia. No small farm, no livestock nearby (to smell and hear), no endless fields... But it's definitely not devoid of nature. Just this week we were invaded by millions of ladybugs. And last week I was photographing some scarves that my Mom made to sell on Etsy, and a snake crawled under one of them. Yes, plenty of nature.
One of my favorite ways to get outside and enjoy nature, even in the city, is to take a Nature Walk. Usually we pick one theme for observation ("What do you hear?" "What kinds of bugs can we find?" "What sorts of seeds are there around us?") Today we did "What colors can we find?"
Not everyone wanted to go.
We looked for colors in our walk. Instead of picking up the colors and bringing them home, we took along the camera.
Yes, it's beautiful here too. Even Josephine enjoyed it.
