This week, the outdoor challenge was evening primrose and night blooming flowers. It was great timing, because we were planning on going camping anyhow! It was the first time camping for everyone in the family, except my husband…so, being camping newbies, plus doing primitive tent camping with three kids from ages 1 through 6, we were in for quite the adventure! I’ll post most of those pictures at the end of this post, so that the nature study stuff can be at the top of the post.
Anyhow, it was a rainy night with a few thunderstorms, so we weren’t able to go out to observe early on in the evening. However, once it was dark, the thunderstorms let up and we were able to walk around the edge of the woods and lake looking for flowers that only bloom at night. Oddly enough, we actually didn’t see any. But, the next morning we did see morning glories…flowers that only bloom in the morning! So, it wasn’t quite the results of the challenge we wanted, but still, really cool and kind of related!
And now for the camping pictures…I’ll post it in 2 parts because there are like 30 pictures to share! There are lots of nature-related ones too.
Posting part 1…more camp pictures in the next post
