We’ve been exploring for months all the herbs and wildflowers near our home.
The kids went on a hike in the woods with my old camera and took fun pictures of interesting finds!
I love how excited they were to show me this humongous grasshopper on a branch.
Tori loved this big mushroom in the detritus.
They took several pictures of the water patterns in the creek.
We always stop to watch the honeybees!
I love that the kids have the freedom to explore the woods near our house. I encourage them to get out there every day to see the changes taking place with the seasons.
They’ve been fascinated with wildflowers and herbs lately.
We’ve acquired some fun books as gifts and from thrift stores, and I bought a few. The library had some too!
We also went on a family walk in the woods and brought our wildflower guidebook with us.
We loved this very tall thistle!
Foxgloves are my favorite!
We noticed some lovely flowers popping up all over!
We love notebooking about what we’re learning about:

As an avid gardener and budding herbalist (with my first tinctures in the pantry), I just love this study you have created for your children. Talk about knowledge with very practical, real-world application! Way to go mama.
My youngest is in 9th grade and I have created a full blown high school level Botany course for her. This was a good reminder to get out from the classroom and go on adventures as well as study the basics. Thanks!
Wow, that is a humongous grasshopper, it blends in so perfectly. I might purchase this book and take my friends on a hike in San Francisco to see what we can find
Wonderful study! Thank you for sharing with us on the Art of Home-Making Mondays at Strangers & Pilgrims on Earth! :)
