Outdoor Challenge: Sunflowers

(Join the Outdoor Challenge!)

We did not grow sunflowers this summer, but there are fields and fields of them around our area right now, interspersed with snow-on-the-prairie. Beautiful. I forgot my camera as we left for the dentist and then a nature walk, so I have no photos of the fields. Perhaps Javamom will oblige us with a few shots, if she has taken some, hint, hint. ;o)

We also did not read out of the handbook or dissect our sunflowers. We were doing well to get out and find some flowers! Busy, busy week.

Here are our sketches. Triss has more on our nature outing at her blog, Mossflower. Also, here is a link to Mariel's guest blogger post about Spunky Caterpillar.

UPdate: Our Spunky is now a butterfly!
