Taking a walk on a nearly rainy day
Feeling the breeze in the meadow and the humidity in the woods
Learning every step of the way
So much diversity, such an interesting collection of plants
But so much more than plants
One could walk and talk and dream the day away
Wonder at how this world is put together
Seeing a spider’s egg open and spill out hundreds of baby spiders
Did the mother send a message to the babies to scatter in an effort to try and save them from us?
Or was it pure coincidence that we were there at the exact right moment to see such an amazing sight?
We may never know.
Such is the wonder and wonderment found at Adkins Arboretum this week.
