After planting the last of my bulbs I decided to grab my clippers (just the sight of them brings back so many great childhood memories) and go out gathering. I hoped to get a little something to add to the pumpkins and gourds in front of the house. I headed for the treeline on the edge of the field across from our house, but before I crossed the street I stopped to ask my favorite little guy if he wanted to go gathering with Mommy. He came running and took my hand.
I told him how I used to go for walks with Grandpa Dave, Grandma K, and Uncle Nathan when I was a kid. We recited 'Going on a Bear Hunt' as we went through the tall grass (swishy swashy, swishy swashy).
I found some grapevine to cut and made it into a wreath when I got home...not yet sure exactly what I'll do with it.
I also brought home this bunch of weeds and grasses...just the type of bouquet my dad would have loved.
How wonderful to be out in nature and to share it with Levi.
