we spent the afternoon exploring at the adelaide botanical gardens.
i love all the green. i love all the textures, forms and shapes of the plants.
jess loved seeing the birds, ducks and fish in the pond.
she also loved running around looking at the different cypress trees and feeling their needles. we used lots of describing words as we felt each one... soft, draping, spiky, prickly... this was quite a new experience for jess as we pretty much only see rugged, old mallee type gum trees where we live.
jess pretended to be in a forest as we walked through the wisteria tunnel and to be in a cave when we were at the base of a tree whose branches reached the ground enclosing the space. it would seem jess's imagination is beginning to take shape.
