Today's escapade involved a mom, 2 students, many creatures and a children's garden.
The creature count: 1 baby praying mantis, 3 tiger swallowtails, 2 squirrels, lots of little yellow butterflies, 2 spicebush swallowtails, lots of bumblebees wallowing in pollen, honeybees in and out of a hive, 1 big spider, 1 bullfrog, too many ants, a captive black rat snake and several moths.
M added to his leaf book from last year,
and gave an enthusiastic retelling of the story of Peter Rabbit.
We found so much fuel for the imagination at Atlanta Botanical Gardens.
