Wow! What a great month our family had with the weeds and wildflowers theme! We saw flowers everywhere we went and were able to add a few new ones to our wildflower lists. I thoroughly enjoyed reading the entries to the carnival…thanks so much for sharing your nature study activities with the Outdoor Hour Challenge family.
