The constant (as in, pretty much every time they go outside, they bring me something!) gifts of vegetation I get from my kids this time of year are part of what make the summertime season special.
Flowers, petals, leaves, interesting blades of grass, rocks, cool sticks, etc, etc, etc. I don’t know who gets more pleasure from the activity of procuring these things – me or the kids! They love to find things – and I really enjoy seeing what they find!
I need to start a log (a photographic one!) of these “presents,” I think. It would make for some nice images!
And preserve some very sweet memories, too. 🙂
