Spring Nature Hunt

It was such a gorgeous day yesterday that we just had to spend most of our time outside. Yippee!!
Minnie really seems to enjoy birdwatching, & the last few days she has been keenly scanning the garden for signs of any wildlife & signs of Spring. We've been trying to explain that the bulbs she planted way back last Autumn will soon start to grow up through the soil & start flowering, but as you can imagine this concept for a toddler is a difficult one to grasp & we've had lots of; "Now Mummy, now!"

The sunshine inspired us to go on a Nature Hunt to search for signs of Spring & those illusive bulbs! (Now I know Spring doesn't officially begin until March, but we're eager, & just going to check that it is on it's way!) ;o)

Minnie took her homemade binoculars (made craftily from a kitchen towel tube) & Mummy grabbed her camera & off we set.


We took a stroll around our garden to check on our bulbs, & then headed off for a walk to a small wooded area near us. Minnie had fun spotting signs of Spring & discovering a whole host of minibeasts & wild flowers. We also enjoyed burying our wellies in the leaves as you can see!


Here's a little snapshot of what we found...












Minnie had a great time exploring the initial signs of Spring on our nature hunt, next time we head off I'll make sure we take a bug jar with us, so we can observe the minibeasts a little more closely!
