As the Candy Cane & Clementine hunt was on, a group of us spent the morning dropping about 100 plants and trees into the ground in Mtn. View, including about a dozen red flowering current along Columbian Way, so keep your eyes peeled for those red flowers in about six months! Satisfaction. ...
Wonderful day in the woods today! Not a lot of pictures to capture the magic of the morning, and yet the reverberations of laughter and delight remain.
Dozens upon dozens of children arrived to the woods (many who had never been here before!) where they discovered more than just sweet morsels; that also experienced sword fern, hemlock, blue spruce, Oregon grape and Salls. Banjo music filled the air and there was a woodland table laden with wildcrafting materials to create nature ornaments and garland.
Momma Amy and her sweet two year old won the live holiday tree drawing, a lovely fir that was donated by the fine folks at Urban Feed & Garden! We look forward to this tree finding it’s forever home back in Cheasty following the holidays!
All this amidst volunteers who were busy planting trees and plants through MtView!
Thank you to all involved (forest fae and friends alike!) with making this annual event so magical for the children! ...
Have young kids? Come on out to the Candy Cane & Clementine Hunt! It's super-fun!
