There seems an abundance of blooms on our daily journeys and miss E and I talk about what some of these blooms will become in the coming months. Plums, wild strawberries are a few on our preschool walk. But what has really caught our eyes over the last few days are fallen Kohwai blooms. We have had some quite heavy rain and some strong winds the past few nights and this has caused a number of Kowhai blooms to form a yellow carpet beneath a large tree. Today we stopped to carefully gather some, once home we used a needle and cotton to thread them to form a spring time necklace. The perfect accessory for a nature loving little miss and once it's had it's day it can be popped in to the compost bin. These necklaces are a much loved activity I wrote about them last year here.
