Our Silver Maple is heavy with whirlybirds and they are flying around like crazy. Milo is in love with them and when he saw them starting to fall, he ran inside to grab a container and proclaimed he must gather them for his collection! He spent so much time bent over in the grass collecting the little seeds. Every time he opened the lid the wind would blow and some would fly away. He would scurry around trying to save them. Only occasionally did he moan with frustration, but he kept at it.
He filled up two containers with them. Such patience he had. I love that boy. He loves nature and collections.
Each time he goes outside, rocks from our gravel pit catch his eye and he picks out a few “diamonds” to bring in to me. I have quite a few collections of them around the house. Sweet boy.
