The boys and I are delighted by the bright colors of flowers popping up in our neighborhood this month. On a walk around the block, we pointed out colors and shapes of different flowers . I shared the names of the flowers I knew. We smelled the ones close to us. I delighted, again, in how giddy the boys became even by the simplicity of a flower.
Inspired by their beauty, I pulled out some old Organic Gardening magazines and let Everett and (my nephew) Ryan create some collages with pictures of brightly colored flowers and bugs and embellished them with oil pastels.
