Nature Day Sparkles

"Sparkling" was the best way to describe a wet, sunny morning of exploring new leaf buds, exquisite trillium blossoms, and a long, beautiful, and eloquent winter wren's song. Another fabulous day when I felt enormously blessed, rich beyond measure. The banana slug was the final find; exciting enough that a group gathered around us as the girls each held the end of a stick it had been sitting on. I practiced my limited naturalist skills, prompting the girls to explain that slugs are hermaphroditic (male and female).
