Sunday Snapshots

On the Ides of March, my daughter and I went for a little adventure, walking through a local school yard.  I challenged her to find a tree that was brown.  She is taught in school to color tree trunks brown - we all were!  Instead, we found mostly shades of grey, some white, some nearly black, shiny copper, orange on evergreens, maroon bushes, and even 'ugly' green (at least that's what she calls it).  She made a vow never to color a tree trunk brown again. She was actually quite upset about ever coloring a tree trunk brown!

I love these curly grasses!

We walked and walked and never did find a brown tree.  Isn't that funny?

love the furry moss

This tree happens to be charcoal and orange.

crazy looking bark!  : )

And the best picture of all - me & my girl. 


Happy Sunday!

Really no brown trees? Hmmm.. I'm going to have to do this myself. I wonder if the time of day also has something to do with it. What a fun outing and you guys are so cute!
