Outdoor Hour Challenge-Summer Pearly Everlasting Study

I can remember the first time I saw the pearly everlasting flower alongside our walking trail back when I lived in California. I didn’t know its name but it didn’t take much digging to find it in the field guide. I have never forgotten the unique name and the pretty flower.

Make sure to prepare ahead of time by reading the lesson in the Handbook of Nature Study and looking at color photos using the links in the original challenge.

“They look as if they were made of white Japanese paper, and when looked at through a lens, they resemble the petals of a water lily. They are dry to begin with, so they cannot wither.”

Handbook of Nature Study, Lesson 145.
