...and other pretty things for a nature table*
My friend teaches reception at primary school,
and she likes to make a nature table.
Things to touch and smell and name and notice.
Things to count and sort and peer at with a magnifying glass.
On my morning rounds I fill my pockets with treasure, before it gets trampled.
Acorns and cones, spotty feathers and a posy of fiery leaves.
Of course it wouldn't be autumn without conkers
Throw in a
horse marrow in striped pyjamas and a pumpkin or two
- and that's a table full of autumn joy that nobody could resist!
*talking of bonkers - have you seen what kylie's up to at lucy violet vintage?
