Just as you think spring has arrived, so does the rain and mist but at least it's been milder in the South of Wales. This week we have been discovering the simple pleasures and magic that lies in the outdoors. From turning over stones to look for worms to collecting all the wonderful pine cones that now lie on the ground, throwing stones into the river and climbing fallen trees. Unfortunately I had a bit of a camera malfunction this week, although happy to say it's all sorted now, but it does mean this posts was document on my phone, so images are not as crisp as usual.
We also love collecting pine cones to paint or put on our nature table at home. I think we are going miss them during the summer so we are making a little stock pile at home.

Even in dull weather our favorite time of the day is spent outdoors. It's great that Cardiff has such a wonderful park such at Bute Park, which is filled with trees to hide under and little wooden animal sculptures.
Every week we take part in the Country Kids linky, if you like to spend time outdoors with your little ones why not join in.
