"It is inexcusable to live in a world so full of the marvels of plant and animal life and to care for none of these things."
How about a list in our nature notebooks called FALL FIRSTS?
I am dividing my page into three columns:
RED, GOLD, PURPLE
I am listing the colours as they arrive in a specific plant.
RED Oct. 1
tips of blueberry bushes
keys of the Japanese maple
a maple leaf here and there
Brown-eyed Susans fading
tall Pampas grass
A wee explanation: this website was created as a way to amplify the daily surprise of seeing glory in one small life. The notebook entries represented here are all selected from things actually lived and noted on paper in an effort to live the full life British educator Charlotte Mason so ably championed.
