When I stepped outside there was so much going on with my bird friends in the trees. I could not spot them but listened in for a while. I didn't even notice when Kevin arrived. When we met at Schmitz Park we talked about a Nature Club for Fairmount Park. Since then I was excited to show Kevin the Park and get him excited, too.
We walked along the path and started our tour on the South end. I showed him the spot where the bee swarm was hanging out last Spring. We went up the hill and I showed him all the dense growth where I haven't figured out the trees. We had to cut our way through the blackberries on the path under the power line.
It was obviously quite a long time ago since I went on a walk through the entire 1.3 acre green belt. We visited the Mother of the Forest, went in the little hide out, looked at the signs left on the cherry log and then tried to find out more about some of the mysteries.
Bitter cherry for the log. Unsure about the dense growth.
We also talked about opportunities, learning and ideas.
