A Winter Nature Walk

February 17, 2009

‘Tegenaria gigantea’ – The common house spider

We found this spider crawling across the pavement just as we were getting in the car; we carefully captured it for a short while to study it


An interesting looking tree

Nature boy Joel; ready for an adventure!

“Let them once get in touch with nature and a habit is formed which will be a source of delight and habit through life.”
Charlotte Mason


Beautiful snowdrops (Galanthus)


So pretty and delicate – yet so strong

“… these frail snowdrops that together cling,
And nod their helmets, smitten by the wing
… these frail snowdrops that together cling,
And nod their helmets, smitten by the wing
Of many a furious whirl-blast sweeping by…”

On Seeing a Tuft of Snowdrops in a Storm by William Wordsworth


Green Mama!


We found a den made out of sticks; N & J just had to try it out!

“There is no part of a child’s education more important than that he should lay – by his own observation – a wide basis of facts towards scientific knowledge in the future.”
Charlotte Mason


Another facinating tree


Roots


A fallen tree that caught our eye


A small waterfall


I found trees really interesting today…


Ivy (Hedera helix), clinging to a tree


My beautiful family


“We are all meant to be naturalists, each in his own degree, and it is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things.”
Charlotte Mason


Washing wellies at the end of the walk!

Blessings
