nature play...

We were back at the arboretum today. I've been there several times this summer, but this time we found a truly magical place tucked in back of the learning center. It was a natural play area under a very old, absolutely breathtaking oak tree.The little "toad abode" and shelters and homes made from vines and tree trunks were so creative and wonderful.


Next to this beautiful playground was a children's garden with some of the tallest sunflowers I had ever seen.What an amazing place to nuture little minds, under the canopy of a giant beauty.

Oooh what a delightful and magical place for the children to play. They look so darling and so happy! It's wonderful to see them outdoors enjoying beautiful mother nature and using their imaginations.Reminds me of my childhood days. :) XO,Jenn
