Summer Nature Table

I’m so excited – we have just set up our first nature table!

We have a fairy door, a sun gnome and a summer lady, items that I lovingly made.

From our garden we have, love in the mist and poppy seed pods, as well as some lemon verbena leaves (love that scent!). Plus some nice green pine cones that husband of mine collected for us 🙂

We all love looking at it, and through summer we will add little items that we find 🙂

A day later – Master D has already added some items he has found, he is having so much fun with this!

Happy days! Kelly

    Beautiful, Kelly! Hazel likes collecting leaves (mostly falling apart ones) and rocks for her nature table. I keep adding some other things as well. Enjoy!

    What a beautiful, magical table it is! It’s lovely to see someone else in the summer zone too 🙂

    This makes me want to have a nature table! And I LOVE the added magic of the gnome and fairy door. Food for the imagination! We have some plastic woodland creature figurines that would love to frolic through some fall leaves, etc.! Thanks for the idea–pinning it!

    I always love reading your blog – especially seeing your summer nature table in our winter. By the time summer arrives, just think of all of the ideas I’ll have!

    This is such a wonderful exercise! As adults, we are often unaware of the natural world around us and I can’t help but think that children brought up to honor the seasons and nature will always be conscious of these things…despite their fluorescent work cubicles!!
