We are finally getting back to our Nature Study! Barbara at The Handbook of Nature Study blog is helping us discover nature in winter. Following what we did in the fall, we will take a closer look at nature close to us in the winter, looking at cattails, our tree, the weather, and more.
We started today by checking out the cattails near the farmer's field. We were surprised to find that the cattails were still there. I thought maybe they wouldn't be, or at least not the top part of the plant.
Some plants were still dark, others very light. Most were intact, but some like the one below, were breaking apart.
