Recently we took a walk near a local lake. We have been reading this month’s poem every day and had googled the flower names a few days before our walk to see what they look like. On our walk my 5 year old said, “Mom, those are Asters!” and they were. We found goldenrod, too. It was fun to see “Asters by the brook-side”. To have a poem come to life for us was so special.
