Treasures in the forest

Our area had a big wind storm last weekend.  Many neighbours lost trees.  Many homes were damaged.  We were safe, but parts of our roof came off!

This morning, my littlest ones and I went for a stroll to check on the safety of our favourite trees.  The kids were worried that the squirrels homes and birds nest would be destroyed.

Luckily, beyond a few broken branches, the kids were very happy to see all the squirrels and birds seemed to be in good shape.

While we were checking the forest though, we found our first Trilliums this season.  If you aren’t from Ontario, you may not know that Trilliums are a very big deal here.  It is actually illegal to pick one!

So I tried to grab a quick picture of the kids by the flowers.  But with all the excitement over the flowers, I was nervous the toddler might grab it…  He didn’t!  Phew.

A night in jail would not be the ideal way to spend this spring day for this lady.  I would love to hear about your spring treasures!

  1. This is great, the kids learn that the natural things in the forest survive better than the man made things in the city……
    We are spending our first week of May raking leaves and winter debris from the lawns and flower beds, and watching the dozens of birds at the feeders and on the ground. The neighbour cats are learning where to hunt and I am keeping a eye out for them as well.
