The kids had some fun doing the leaf rubbings. This tree holds on to its leaves well into November though lots of other trees have turned. Seems like autumn crashed in on us this year...it was still hot and then it just started raining a ton and we missed the transition!
|J6 is getting good at recording his weather in a box.|
|R11 had a good time collecting more leaves and doing the rubbings- Japanese maple, Box Elder, and the Tulip Poplar. I'm pretty sure she pressed some leaves as well. Stay tuned for more on pressing!|
|Nice, big leaves...isn't that Japanese maple gorgeous? This tree doesn't react well to environmental stressors- it began to look unwell during our dry summer and now we've had gobs of rain.|
