Wednesday Nature Study

While we were in San Diego this past weekend, we visited Mission San Diego de Alcala. The gardens there were absolutely beautiful. I snapped a few pics of some flowers and thought I'd share them for our nature study today.

These are some amazingly large roses.

Gladiolas.

This is called a kafir lily from South Africa.


This crazy-looking thing is a Christmas cactus. It's growing intertwined with the tree.

A pomegranate flower.


Bird of Paradise in full bloom.


African daisy.

There were so many more it was difficult to capture all of them. I'm planning on posting our field trip details soon.

Til' next time~

Nice photos! I always loved homeschool field trips. :-) What an education is available to the homeschooled kid!

Thanks, Sue!

Judy, I couldn't agree more. It's the best decision we've made concerning the kids.
