On Saturday, a friend and I went to Cummings Nature Center. This is a lovely place, South of Rochester. It's associated with the Rochester Museum and Science Center. It was my first time there, and I really enjoyed myself.
We decided to hike to the Beaver Pond. The day was warm, and the sun was shining. On the way to the trail, we walked through the grounds. It's a perfect place for kids.
They have a leapfrog pond, showing the progression from tadpole to frog that kids can play on.
Ferns were everywhere, and of many different kinds, including
Common, or Rock Polypody
Joe Pye Weed(one of my favorites)
