One of the things that my life science students learn about is the four phyla of plants: moss, ferns, conifers, and flowering plants. It’s hard for many of the students to imagine that trees like Oaks and Maples bloom.
The Red Maple in my yard is currently blooming, so I had to capture pictures to use for school.
Isn’t this tiny little bloom stunning? Each bloom makes a seed. It’s no wonder that I have so many seeds to rake and sweep in the fall!
Spring is the perfect season to slow down and take a moment to really admire Mother Nature’s true beauty.
