We have been working on the next two outdoor nature hour challenges as we plant our garden and observe the beautiful spring wildflowers that are blooming in our area.
We have also planted a variety of flowers in our garden. Some have germinated and some of the seeds got washed away with a heavy rain. The boys chose a couple of different variety of sunflowers to plant. The sunflowers are growing taller each day. Here are the boys taking a look at their sunflowers.
We have observed lots of flowers and wildflowers in bloom around our yard and pasture.
white clover flowers
purple cone flower (not blooming yet, but we planted a couple in our yard last year and they are growing.)
red clover flowers
sweet white violet
bird's foot violet
We planted: sunflowers, marigolds, and zinnias
