Update Green Hour Nature Challenges: Flower Focus

Click on all these pics of flowers to see an enlarged image. The texture of the flowers are amazing!! They are truly a work of ART……….Our Lord’s ART!!

Our Green Hour Challenge focus is on Flowers. One is on Flower parts (Green Hour Challenge #13) so I really have been noticing flowers lately and their parts. I like to take the really close up pics so that you can see the fine detail that God included in this part of His creation. I also love the variety that He provided for us to enjoy!! Here are links to different diagrams of flower parts: http://www.urbanext.uiuc.edu/gpe/case4/c4facts1a.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flower http://www.enchantedlearning.com/subjects/plants/printouts/floweranatomy.shtml http://www.csdl.tamu.edu/FLORA/201Manhart/repro/repro.1/repro1.html http://curriculum.calstatela.edu/courses/builders/lessons/less/les8/flower.html http://www.amnh.org/learn/biodiversity_counts/ident_help/Parts_Plants/parts_of_flower.htm . I provided links to several diagrams because I like choices so I thought you might also =o) All these flowers I saw on the grounds of a castle where the Renaissance Festival is held in TN. This week I need to work on identifying some if not all of these Flowers! I hope you enjoy the pics!! I encourage you to get out in God’s Creation and enjoy and learn about HIS Flowers!!

Also look they are growing!!!!! =o) My boys were so excited when we came home tonight from being out of town and they saw that our chia pet had really been growing and that the seeds we planted and begun to sprout. This weekend one of my SIL gave my boys this Root Viewer as a gift. The boys really liked it and they can’t wait to plant the veggies and watch them grow. I know these are veggies and not flowers but since we will be watching them grow I thought it went well with Green Hour Challenge #12. At the link below you will see the instructions for this Green Hour Challenge # 12 ” Start your Engines….I mean your seeds” that I am talking about: http://www.homeschoolblogger.com/HarmonyArtMom/523714/
