To celebrate this perfectly stunning day, Vivienne and I enjoyed a nature walk down at Millbrook Marsh. We filled a canning jar with an assortment of flowers, burs, grasses, and crab apples, learning to take a small sample with us. At one point, we both stopped to watch three butterflies flit around. I was just about to reflect on how perfect this was… how, hopefully, our entire mother-daughter relationship would be this blissful when I happened to notice the rabbit turds we were sitting in. Ah, nature at its finest. (No, I did not take a picture!)
I’m glad that for now, V is content to watch the caterpillars and ladybugs in their natural surroundings without begging for them to move into ours.
