My Nature Lover

There are some children, when you ask to go out into nature to scavenger hunt, (especially in the 92 degree Florida heat) that argue and complain. Not "Little Joe". I gave him an assignment for Science to go explore and see what he could find.

He found 2 different leaves, a beautiful blue bird feather (you can't see the blue in the picture, but it is startling how blue it is), and a precious lavender wild flower.

The joy in this is seeing his joy in nature.

These items lying in our yard remind me that there is so much beauty around us and so often we are so busy to see the small things such as wildflowers, bird feathers, cocoons, etc. Take time today to look around you.

"Little Joe", thank you for this reminder. I love you.
