This week has been a bit of a whirlwind, as my eldest daughter was in hospital for several days.
The first thing we did, the day after she returned home, was to go for a family nature walk. It did us all the world of good; blowing away the cobwebs, refreshing us, beauty all around us.
It was a such a glorious morning, spring is most certainly on the way! We found an interesting burrow, sprouting Daffodils, and lots of mud! The birds delighted us with their song!
Rose spied a Coal Tit, which she later sketched.
The Hazel by the pond was full of catkins, which I chose to sketch, along with a lichen-covered Hawthorn branch, still with its berries intact.
A wee reminder that if you are using Exploring Nature With Children, then next week is February Week Four: ‘A Field Trip’.
