Summer nature table

14 Jul

I think it has officially been summer for a little while now but unfortunately our English climate seems unaware of this fact.

We had really enjoyed our spring nature table so were keen to update it for the new season. I painted a new watercolor picture to represent a summer time tree. The shells are from our local beach. Ok, I have to admit, they were bought and not collected at the beach. We don’t live anywhere exotic enough for these types of shells. Hopefully during the summer we will get to add some collected treasures from our days out.

The little bunches of flowers are all collected from our garden. It’s good to know that even though the sun is rarely shining, the garden is still producing beautiful flowers and delicious soft fruit.

    What a wonderful Summer Nature Table. I tried to do one – but everything got stolen for play so by the end of the first morning all that was left was 2 books that had fallen flat and they couldn’t reach!

      Thank you. My daughter (who is very nearly 3) loves it and does pick bits off it but knows that they ‘live’ on the nature table and need to be put back there. My one year old however, would happily destroy it in a second! Smaller items and vases full of water tend to get pushed to the back where he can’t quite reach. I’m not sure what we’ll do when he grows a bit taller!
