In the Handbook of Nature Study we found an amazing entry on Nasturtiums. We all learned so much about them!
Z enjoyed making little boats of the leaves and discovered that the leaves turn silvery when immersed in the water. I love to see drops of water on their leaves, shining like jewels in the sun.
The children made entries in their nature journals. K enjoyed labelling her entry and writing about all the interesting facts she discovered.
"The Nasturtium is among the most interesting and beautiful of our garden flowers......its combinations of colour are exceedingly rich and brilliant."
