How to study botany during a drought...

Well, we finished our study of botany this week. Mother nature was not going to change her plans and send rain. Most all of Fi's plants dried up and died. We did have a few successes, the rosemary loved this hot dry weather and is as big as a small tree. The hot peppers and okra also bared fruit. We were able to see clearly the effects of cycles in nature and what a 100 years drought can do to the eco-system. Both girls are happy to be moving on to the next area of study, Earth Science. We are using My World Science and Living Learning Bks for Fi and Prentice Hall and CyberEd for Mac.
