Last week as I walked along the river, I came upon a hands-on science lesson in progress – a mother enabling her children at a young age to develop a love of nature.

Apparently she brings the kids down to the river about once a week to feed grain to the ducks. 

And they obviously love it! All of them! As you can see, the excitement of the ducks soon attracted the geese, at which point the baby was lifted to mom’s knee.     

When the swans decided to join the party, it was time for the little ones to leave.

The joy on the faces of these three, and the delighted murmuring of appreciation 
from their feathered friends was truly a wonderful addition to my morning stroll. 
To see the next generation being groomed to respect their world, awesome!
