It’s not often that I’ve stopped to view an area during different seasons, usually I’m “too busy” to really take notice, so when we stayed in London with the grandparents for a weekend it was a total eye opener to take the boys back to the local park.
The changes were vast and colourful, the boys were amazed to see trees which had been bare mere weeks before full of leaves.
Rose bushes which had been bare twigs of thorns now displayed beautiful blooms.
River banks were full of lush grasses, brambles and the odd flower.
Ducks were fed.
Wishes were made.
But most of all, Ahren and Ethan gained an appreciation for the changes of Spring to Summer whilst enjoying the freedom run and play.
I also learnt a valuable lesson… Never ever crouch down in stinging nettles to pick up a bag your kid dropped in the river whilst wearing you favourite pair jeans which have a rip in the butt. It hurts!!
Nature is beautiful but painful at times!
