Yesterday afternoon my son Jack and I went to our local library to study wildflowers. We collected his journal ,art supplies, and found a spot near the gardens. Our library's gardens is filled with native plants that are taken care of by our master gardeners.
We talked about native plants and what they are called, how wildflowers seeds are spread, and what types of insects we find in our gardens.
Jack spotted a few Cicada shells laying around the trees, and we listened to the sounds they make.
Jack drew Black Eyed Susan's in his journal.
We found some great books that we would like to share with you on the topics of late summer gardens, gardening, and insects.
