The theme for the month of May in The Nature Book Club is wildflowers. I have been looking forward to this theme and to Spring-time for awhile now so that we could start a Wildflowers Nature Study. I love seeing the tree line and grassy areas around our little farm fill up with pops of color from the wildflowers growing.
Earlier this month our “spring” weather was a little uncooperative with rain and chilliness, so we started our Wildflowers Nature Study this past week with a stroll around our little farm to take pictures of some of the wildflowers that have begun to fill the tree line and grass with color.

After I uploaded our wildflower photos to the laptop, we spent some time trying to identify them with the Take-Along Guide Wildflowers, Blooms and Blossoms by Diane L. Burns.
Here are a few of the wildflowers that we have discovered on our farm so far.
The only wildflower in our Take-Along Guide that we could positively identify (which I did not get a photo of!) is White Clover. We currently have a large quantity of clover growing in our yard.
We watched a YouTube Video about Trillium, which is the Ohio State Wildflower.
Next week we will continue our Wildflowers Nature Study, hopefully, we will find a few more wildflowers when we take a hike up the little mountainside behind our house into Wayne National Forest.
I found these wildflower coloring pages and put together a YouTube Playlist for our Wildflower Nature Study to watch on days that are not so easy to get outside to explore our little mountainside backyard. These flower activities are also great for indoor discovery.
