The highlight of today was playing with beautiful spring blossoms. Nature has so many natural toys to play with!
My friend Jessica posted about a hyacinth blossom octopus (w/ 6 legs though :)) the other day and I though it was just the cutest thing. I showed this to my little ladies and they saw the blossoms as fancy ladies with pretty skirts instead!
Their hyacinth ladies were to attend a grand ball! Fauna suggested they add cherry blossom petticoats to their long skirts to make the ball more formal.
At the petticoat shop looking for the perfect petticoats-
Notice the cherry blossom petticoats under the hyacinth dancers-
This one turned over for all to see her viola petticoat, not very lady like, the others scolded her!
A crowded dance floor!
The Princess of the ball with a daffodil petticoat. She also has arms made from a Hawthorn twig.

“The purpose of Children & Nature Awareness Month is to celebrate the benefits of experiences in the natural world to children, and to all of us, and to offer alternatives to nature-deficit disorder,” said Dr. Cheryl Charles, President and CEO of C&NN.
