...growing tree...Our trip to the Nerstrand Woods was actually our second hiking excursion on our last “weekend”. Our first day off, we headed south to Faribault where we picked up a few flowers for Beau. On the way back we took a hike in the River Bend Nature Center. I seriously love hiking in the Spring. The ground is just covered in green with tiny plants. And the green leaves are so vivid and stand out. Love it.
