"And as the season come and go, here's something you might like to know ... there are fairies everywhere under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch, and look around -- in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing." - Author Unknown
I love that fairy poem and this picture just took my breath away. To think there is such unparalleled beauty in Nature...
Today is the Spring Equinox and we will be making flower fairies to celebrate today. I hope to post them soon.
On Monday, we made a feature for our spring nature table with inspiration from one of my favorite books, "Earthways" by Carol Petrash...
Here is our current nature table space - an unused end table in our family room.
We headed outside to begin...
The girls each chose a shell placed upside down, to be filled with water and act as a little pond.
Then, we each chose a small branch from our blooming plum tree.

We mounted them in our tray and placed pebbles around them to help secure them before adding grass seeds.
"C" decided it would look lovely if we added a little stone path, so she did and this is how it turned out!
We brought it inside to display and the girls misted it well.
And voila! Now every day, we are awaiting the buds. We decided to place a purple netting around it for the Lenten season. And, of course, being animal lovers, the girls have asked every day if we could add animals to it. Monday, we will add them and are busy making them this week.
Until then, we continue to marvel at the new life springing up around us and are enjoying the bunnies jumping through our yard and the birdies singing to us each and every day...
