Join us on our walk around our neighborhood?
We ventured out for a winter nature walk.
I love the birches in this area. Their bark really stands out…and has eyes!
an evergreen silhouette with the sun shining through it.
a tree that still has leaves on it
Just look at that gorgeous bark! I think it’s a striped maple.
crows in the tree. they were eating walnuts.
and, look! a crow footprint in the snow.
this tree already has buds on it
this birch with buds and catkins
juniper berries. Tori was good to spot these.
a really big beautiful rock in someone’s front yard
a poignant picture of unpruned withered roses with rocks
Tori was excited by how long her shadow was.
Rosehips along the next door neighbor’s fence. I love how they stand out against the gray and snow.
our new nature display box. I found this at Hobby Lobby. perfect.
the girls hard at work drawing the milkweed pods
Tori is proud of her tree silhouette page
Katie is drawing the buds and crows in her tree silhouette
Alex drew his pictures too. He loves being a part of it all.
Tools we use and love
Sure glad we got in that walk since we’re in a blizzard this weekend!
Tori got a little rock set for Christmas and we’re going to explore that since all our rocks are under billows of snow right now.
