Nature Study: Pussy Willows

ns_pussy_willows_smPicture 962 We have been learning all about pussy willows lately in our homeschool. We read a fascinating book called Wonderful Pussy Willows by Jerome Wexler that taught about the intricacies about the male and female plants.

We went out to Bear Creek today and observed the buds just starting to emerge. We are planning to visit the same spot in a week and it will be neat to observe the plants as they continue to change and grow.

They dug trenches in the sand and chased butterflies. It was a delight to watch them discover the wonders of nature.Picture 954Picture 965 Picture 964 Picture 963Bud made a page in his nature notebook about pussy willows. He drew the male and female plants and labeled the different parts.
