We are so lucky that we are situated on the edge of a park and are able to embrace all the beauty, colours, changing scenary, dew-dropped mornings and birdsong that the season bestows on our senses. Being in such close proximity to daily changes and earth’s continuing cycle is a privilege.
One of our recent favourite things to do is playing and being creative with leaves, twigs and other little nature finds. When I was little, I recall the deep satisfaction in wading through thick piles of leaves, enjoying the rustling sound and also making ginormous enormous leaf piles and bundling into them. Simple pleasures which our children all loved to do too. ‘Again!’ ‘Again!’ came the cries of delight.
