Our woods, enchanted land for kids to explore

Thursday 1st June 2017

We grew up in the woods, following our grandfather Leo looking for mushrooms or to rediscover the places of his youth.

As kids the forest was an enchanted place, we would discover the soft moss glades where you may find some little treasures, porcini mushrooms. We could spend hours staring at a busy anthill or climbing on the trees, and there would be great happiness when grandpa would find the sweet wild strawberries.

During the autumn we would collect pinecones, great to start the fire in the stove, and we would compete with each other to see who could collect the most. With the arrival of the snow our walks would stop and we would wait for the spring, when the first flowers would peep out we ware ready for a new adventure!
