Enjoying nature

Who says you need to make a mess, or spend time getting materials ready, to spend quality time with your kids? We have been really enjoying discovering the different flowers that are constantly blooming this time of year, as we live on a property that has various trees and bushes planted on it, as well as having a little bit of woods to 'explore.' There's always something new to discover in Spring. Recently, the butterflies have come out. I don't remember seeing them last year, but they are everywhere!!!! We have some blooming bushes that they are in love with. Rachel and I were able to stand and watch them fly all around, as well as even get close enough to watch their long tongues/mouth furl and unfurl into the flowers for a drink. We've discovered three 'colors' of butterfly, and now I'm off to find some books from the library with photographs of lots of different butterflies for us to discover!
