Outdoor Hour # 31 part II

During our second outdoor hour last week we went to look at one plant in particular. I had seen it as I passed by and was curious to take a closer look.

It just happens that we have cotton growing around the corner by the street. I have no idea where that came from and I can't believe I've never seen it before but there it is now. The kids thought it was really exciting and we obviously picked some cotton to take home for an even closer look.


Luana spotted this pretty flower and wanted a picture of it.

Half-way through our walk we had something to drink at this tiny bar.

We some bananas growing by the river Mororó.

We passed through this quiet and cute street...

... and saw our own house (the white one) from a completely new angle. It took the kids a while to recognise it was actually our home.
This was such a nice walk. We had taken these route already before but that was ages ago and lots of things seemed different this time. The best thing during the walk was definitely the cotton :)

Olipas kiva katsella kuvia lähiseudultanne ja erityisesti talostanne mikä kyllä erottuu joukosta. Onko alueellanne muita samantyylisiä taloja?

Kiva kun tykkäsit! Ihan naapurustossa ei ole samantyylisiä mutta lähikaduilla kyllä. Tää kuva on vielä otettu sellaselta tosi erityyliseltä asuinalueelta, joka on ihan meidän talon takana ja se korostuu kuvassa.

I have not had many people with cotton growing so it will be great to have another entry to add.

Thank you so much for sharing!

Barb, will post it there too! Your cotton challenge looks great and it'll give me lots of good links to explore as I plan to do a mini study of yarn and fibers with the kids later on this year. Thanks!
