September's theme!

Each spring and fall, I'm reminded of how enchanting and wondrous seeds and plants are. That being said, they are something we all take for granted....but without them life. simply. stops.

Amazing really!

Many are featured in fairy tales (Jack and the Beanstalk, Princess and the Pea, Thumbelina and Rumpelstiltskin to name a few) but even if they weren't, they would still be enchanting.

September's ornament: seeds or seedpods of any kind ...feel free to include a wee inhabitant if you'd like.
Don't forget that some flowers are actually seed pods (ex: dandelion and thistle) and that trees have wonderfully ornamental seedpods.

September's challenge: create a nature table, wreath or swag with things you collect during the activity.

September's activity: take a walk in the woods or on a nature trail with a friend or loved one and enjoy the change of seasons.
