We were out of town last week so I decided instead of doing double work I would just combine challenge 12 and 13 in one post. If you haven’t been reading my post before, these challenges are from Barb @ Heart of Harmony http://handbookofnaturestudy.blogspot.com/2008/02/green-hour-challenge-1-lets-get-started.html. These challenges have been WONDERFUL to me and therefore my boys. We get outside a whole and we notice, observe, investigate and enjoy all kinds of amazing things in God’s Creation but these challenges have given me something to focus on and learn about so I can share what I learn with my boys very casually and naturally.
During the past week as we have been outside my youngest has picked lots of flowers for me which was perfect since these challenges we are focusing on Flowers =o)
Here is a close up of Honeysuckles and the 2nd pic is of a fence in out backyard that is completely covered with honeysuckle. It is beautiful and smells delicious. We actually have been noticing Honey suckle everywhere. On our recent camping trip we were blessed to see it everywhere also.
I still have not been able to identify this white flower but someone just offered a name of a flower so I will be checking it out. We have lots of them around and they were also all over the place on our camping trip.
