We hit up the farmer's market, got some lovely veggies, and then headed to Tryon Creek State Park for the Trillium Festival. Ava loves nature hikes lately, so I gave her a grocery bag and let her pick up pinecones, seeds, leaves, and branches. We had a great time enjoying the scenery and trying to identify the plants and flowers that we found.
