A Day in the Undergrowth

On a recent “forest day” (what we’re now calling these little nature-nurturing interludes of life) we took to exploring our favourite forest on a sort of scavenger hunt. Instead of just hanging around the redwood grove, we followed the river and ferny outskirts, and took new paths. These are my favourite photos from the day:

This would be your typical Victorian rainforest if it weren’t for the pines!
