Planting Trees

Here is our latest Nature Study item: 2 Peach Trees

Tree #1 is from an organic Nursery that is a full size Peach Tree - it has already bloomed but there is lots of new growth on it and we are excited to see what it does!!

This is tree #2 from Home Depot - a Semi-dwarf Peach tree.

It will be fun to watch these two trees grow and track their progress!! Eating the results will be fun too!!

Blue Heron

Here is a picture of a Blue Heron that My Oldest took about a month ago while golfing with his father and Papa. He was pretty close and got this and a few other great shots.
He told me :"I liked getting to see it because we do not usually get to see these birds up close"


We (my ambleside students and I) are starting our Nature Journal/Nature Study Blog.

We will post soms pics that we have taken in the past year or so of nature we are studied and then we will post pics of things we will study!
