We haven’t done a true nature study in a long while. I thereby made a more conscious effort to assure it didn’t get overlooked again. My oversight/distraction has become a frustration for me … in more than one subject, but this is a topic for another post.
For Christmas, my mom and her partner gave us a bag of tulip and daffodil bulbs (they operate a small nursery). To be honest, I had set the bag in the laundry room with the thought, ‘I’ll get to them later.’ I then promptly forgot about them, until I stumbled upon them the other day and decided I best make use of them before they began to decompose.
The munchkins both chose to illustrate just one bulb, while I illustrated both (Buddy’s shown on top, MeiLi’s is in the middle). I am not very knowledgeable about flowers so I can’t discern one from the other.
When we completed our illustrations, we planted the bulbs in two large pots that adorn our porch. We look forward to spring when they come into bloom.
