Garden and Gather: Nature Museum & Fresh Fall florals

"Green is the prime color of the world, and that from which its loveliness arises. There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more."

-Pedro Calderno

Tatum and I escaped to the nature center and mostly were enthralled by the butterflies. They were everywhere and filled with life/energy/loveliness. I snapped a few photo after one decided to gently make its way on my (unpolished) fingers. He stayed for awhile and I got down and let Tatum see it's beauty and the wonderful creatures our Magnificent Lord created for us to marvel. She also was a fan of the turtles and can almost say "turtle" without my guidance. We sure enjoy exploring and curating activities to stimulate the mind and eyes.

Charlotte Nature Museum is located at 1658 Sterling Road in Charlotte, North Carolina.
