this last image is of the garden at my son's grade school.  i love that the kiddos are out in nature being taught about plants, composting and planting by tending the garden.  sometimes they simply go outside and hold classes there. Liam really enjoys it and has been participating in a junior master gardener club through our local library since March.

get outside, take a walk and admire your surroundings. 

please follow along....PNG

til next time.
