I love discovering new treasures in my own backyard, and today was one of those very days. Our nature group visited the Garfield Park Conservatory, located relatively close to home- less than 10 minutes away. It houses a huge collection of indoor plants and offers a warm location with plenty of room for exploring on two feet. For a young walker with cabin fever, the place was heavenly.
Tye wore herself out and is finishing up a long, well-deserved nap. Activities like this make winter much more bearable. Plus, I just read on meteorologist Tom Skilling's Facebook page that we're past the halfway point of winter- "Typically 55% of the season's snow has occurred by this date." We'll be back to our nature walks in no time.
What are your favorite winter activities?
