Wildflowers give ever-changing color

19 Apr

Our Titan wildflower field is in full bloom right now. We were blessed with beautiful bluebonnet a and have now moved in to the gorgeous Indian Blanket blooms.

This wildflower field is reseeded every year during our annual fall wildflower stomp. The kids come out and stomp, jump , dance and twist to help the seeds get good soil contact. Then 6 months later, presto! It’s a fun tradition and a great learning opportunity about some of our great native wildflowers.

Last of the cool season

It’s time in Texas to change over to our warm season vegetables so we had a wonderful time harvesting the last of our carrots with our 4th graders who planted them back in the fall.
