cow vetch and ox-eyed daisy
It was a beautiful cool, crisp day today.
Perfect for taking a nature hike at Mount Hope.
A few wild raspberries were found.....I think wild raspberries are the most delicious treat that God every created.
Second to wild redraspberries has to be wild blackcaps.
These make the best jelly anyone could ever taste.
an unknown, gorgeous bloom
Because we had our magnifying glass, the little children wanted to find "small" nature.
You can't get much smaller than this little toad.
Amy was the tiny toad catcher!
A dragonfly wing was found near the pond. It was perfect for studying with the magnifying glass.
A tiny red mushroom
Amy took this amazing photo---especially when you take into account this mushroom was less than an inch tall.
The babies are almost grown now.
a visiting damsel fly
Luke wanted to keep the damselfly for a pet, but eventually decided on his own to let it fly away.
