Work is paying off in different ways

So we have been so busy with the summer garden and all the new animals that the website gets forgotten, shame.  One small success is our butterfly garden between the house and the main garden.  Despite the lack of rain it is in full bloom right now and we have been inspired.  More will be popping up around the property.  More post soon on all the other things going on.  Don't forget our outdoor preschool has registration going on right now.  It is going to be a great learning experience for the kids as well as a great fun. 

Sometimes you have to stop and enjoy your surroundings

Sometimes we get so busy we forget to look around and take in all the wonderful things that surround us.  Toddlers do help sometimes in seeing the small things that are amazing.  Our kids found this newly emerged Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly yesterday, which I would have totally missed as I was thinking about things that needed to get done while we walked back to the house.  Also there are some lovely spring wildflowers out right now.  So I am going to try to be more in the here and now and take in what is around me, because there is a lot of wonderful things that could be missed otherwise.  Don't forget about our Summer Camp and our Nature Preschool programs.  Registration is going on right now.
