Finishing Up Signs of Spring

We are wrapping up our Signs of Spring study.  Besides looking at a variety of buds (that have now become blooms) we also went back to check on some plants we had first examined.  Ds#2 checked out the Mountain Laurel at the edge of our yard.

We looked again and noticed that the laurel had two distinctly different buds on them.  Flowers are modified leaves so it was interesting to see some buds that would become leaves and others that would become
flowers.

Ds#2 didn't write any poetry for this second examination, but here are the analogies he wrote:
  • A star
  • A palm tree
  • A spider
  • A flower
  • Sea weed
