Every Season Outdoors
As trees start to grow in spring, their sap rises. If you hold a stethoscope to the trunk you can actually hear it gurgling!
It is believed the word “autumn” came from the Etruscan (an ancient Italian civilization) word “autu”, meaning change of season.
Most animals are active in the summer, rearing young. Squirrels begin to gather and hide nuts in late summer for the winter.
The word ‘winter’ comes from the German word ‘winter’ which is derived from wed meaning ‘wet’ or ‘water’.
