Today’s finds…. 21.10.2020

Hello Everyone!

We made beautiful discoveries this morning at the class at St Nicks. Dew drops on leaves, candle snuff fungus, late flowers, autumn leaves … hope you all had a good morning too!

You will notice one photo is of a small seed with roots – there were clusters of these on the woodland floor at St Nicks. We weren’t sure what they were, so in the true spirit of Maria Sibylla Merian I brought one home and planted it in a pot….let’s see what happens next!

Best wishes,

Emma, William and Kathy!
