Our early summer nature table





We have just rearranged our nature table, removing all the leftover seed-pods & beautiful branches that have pine cones still attached. The girls picked some highly perfumed flowers yesterday, so I have put those on the table too. It has a much more summery feel.
Here is a list of goodies on our table right now...
Summer flowers
Our friendly gnomes
Flower fairies: Daisy, Rose & Buttercup
Seashells, snail shells, pebbles from the beach & our walks in the woods.
Hand-carved wooden toadstools
Branches, & a wonderful piece of bark that has 'turkey tail' fungi growing on it.
A chunk of Rose Quartz
Pretty tin butterflies & birds
A piece of moss
Our favourite seasons book, by Elsa Beskow 'Around the Year' turned to the June page.
