I have found it easy not to realize the beauty in a tree without all it’s leaves, blooms, and color. But after taking the time to really observe the winter trees, I see how the tree’s silhouette is still beautiful. The shape of the tree, design of the branches, and how the sky shines around them, each one is different.
We started by observing the tree in our front yard.
Big Ladybug enjoyed making a winter tree watercolor.
Here are some photos from our nature walk together.
This is a book that we enjoyed along with this nature challenge.
