Family Flora Walk

LC was very engaged at the Family Flora Walk. It's the 5th annual NYC Wildflower Week. We walked through the woods of Prospect Park with a Naturalist and discovered (using sight, touch and smell) wildflowers (including flowers, trees, shrubs and grasses), leaves, weeds, mushrooms, seeds, insects etc. The guide held a magnifying glass for us to closely inspect our surroundings. She gave LC a clipboard, pencil crayon and paper to draw what she observed and LC loved drawing the shapes of flowers and leaves. I should have brought LC's camera along. LC told me afterwards she wants to learn gardening! Last year we went to Baby Bugs at Union Square, which was also awesome.
