Outdoor Hour Challenge Blog Carnival: Garden Flower Edition

OHC Blog Carnival

Garden flowers are some of my favorite nature study subjects of all time. Each flower is so unique and wonderful. I hope that your family was able to get outside this month and at least observe some flowers or crop plants up close. I invite you to read what some of the other Outdoor Hour Challenge families have done this month.

Our family’s garden flowers and crop plant entries from this month’s study (in case you missed one):
