It’s not that it never rains here but for whatever reason last week, the raindrops on the pine needles had me completely and utterly transfixed.
However, it wasn’t until I sat down and began editing my raindrops that I noticed up in the top right-hand corner of this photo a beautifully woven spider’s web!
It was wonderful being able to show the children what ACTUAL Holly plants looked like whilst we were in St Johns, Newfoundland.
It was almost sad to know they thought Holly was simply a Christmas ornament. Rather reflective our society I fear – if you can’t / don’t see the real thing, who’s to say it really exists?
This makes me more and more determined to show our children as much of the world as possible so they can make assumptions based on facts and their own experiences. Guess I’ll be hearing a lot more of… “mum, how much longer?”
