Emma learned a lot about buds last year through our Japanese Maple Tree study. We still have snow on the ground, but the trees are budding, clearly ready for spring to arrive! This year Mike brought in some tiny buds from our willow tree for the kids to examine.
They pinched them apart with their fingers, and examined what looked like tiny flowers inside.
Maybe next year we’ll have a microscope so we can get a really close look at them! Anyone have a microscope they love?
