So the morning didn’t prove to be sunny as predicted but Tater and I still ventured out in the afternoon. Despite the gloom, we still had a good time finishing up our Nature adventure. I had found a Children’s Garden online so Tater and I piled into the car and headed on over. It was beyond what I expected, especially for FREE!
The plants/flowers were laid out in the most amazing arrangements. All throughout the garden were little activities for the kids, too: A mud table to play at, a chalkboard to draw on, a sandbox, an evergreen maze and little tiny coves with benches to sit on. They also had a very nice picnic area.
Not only did Tater have a great time with the activities, but he also seemed to like the flowers themselves. I wasn’t sure if he was too young to appreciate them or not. Of course his favorite area was the butterfly garden!
We decided not to plant our Cone Flower when we got home. We are going to wait and enjoy that with Rich tomorrow, along with a Nature walk on some trails at a nearby forest preserve.
Today’s adventures didn’t cost us anything. (Though I will send a donation to the town of the children’s garden.) Every town should have one of these to enjoy! If you are interested in finding one, just do a Google search and you might get lucky to find one, or something similar, near you!
Hope you spend some time enjoying Nature this week!
