Ken has had a desire to have a flower garden for sometime now. Ken has shown me that she is prepared to take on the responsibility to care for flowers and plants. So I thought it would be wonderful for us to participate in the Homeschool Village Garden Challenge. This past month Ken participated in her schools' science fair. Ken loved every bit of it she received an honorable mention award for her work. The passion that I see her have for plants is just amazing. Her question for her project was What is the role of leaves in the process of photosynthesis?
Here is a picture of her science fair display.
This is Ken tending to her project plants.
Ken wants to grow a flower garden a place for birds and butterflies to enjoy, maybe even some fairies may enjoy a visit. This week Ken has started growing Princess Flowers to attract butterflies, Petunias to attract Hummingbirds, and Evening Stars thought to attract fairies.
The flowers were placed in her greenhouse inside until they sprout. It is still rather cold in our part of the world. Right now our challenge is being prepared to work in the garden on any given day cold or not.
When the flowers sprout they will be planted here.
Kens' very own piece of land :) As you can see we have a lot of work to do!!
