Green Hour challenge 9


This is a vew of the rented side. On the left the lime tree, in the middle the guava tree (with the swing) and on the right papaya (the higher one) and manioc (the shorter one).

We just rented our old house (next the one we're currently living in) and just before the people moved in we went to "their" side (see picture above) and did the challenge number 9. This side of the back yard is more interesting than our side but still unfortunately there wasn't much going on...

The kids found:
three different kids of ants (huge, medium and small ones)
flies
grass
moss
small plants with leaves (unfortunately unknown)

After observing their squares we proceeded to the guava tree where their swing hangs from. Once underneath the tree we could smell the ripe guavas and as they were all high up the tree I had to climb. The kids watched with their mouths open as I climbed, got some ripe guavas for us and came down. They said they didn't know their mummy could climb a tree! :D

It's been raining a lot these days so we haven't been able to have our picnic. I'm just waiting for the next sunny day to do that!

Three kinds of ants! That is amazing to me for some reason. I have only really seen two kinds in my life's experience.

I would have loved to have seen you climb the tree. :)

Hope you get your picnic soon! Don't forget to take your nature journals.
