Brand New! Outdoor Hour Challenge
Forget-Me-Nots Wildflower Nature Study
We’ve reached the end of the third wildflower series of Outdoor Hour Challenges here on the Handbook of Nature Study. I sure have enjoyed taking a few minutes each week to learn about these common wildflowers. Next week, we start the herb series of challenges with the study of cilantro!
But this week, take a few minutes to read about and view some images of forget-me-nots in preparation for a wildflower study of a sweet little flower many of you have in your local area. Our yard has quite a few small patches of these blue beauties. It took me a few years to realize that these were actually forget-me-nots!
Where should you look?
- Look up the range map on USDA: Forget-Me-Not Range and also the Woodland Forget-Me-Not range. Check to see if you have forget-me-nots in your local area.
- Look for forget-me-nots in meadows, stream banks, and shrub-steppe habitats with aspens. Normal blooming time is from May to August.
Remember that the complete challenge with videos, printables, and careful observation suggestions is available to Ultimate and Journey level members here on the Handbook of Nature Study. You will need to sign into your Ultimate or Journey level membership to see the book download.
Here’s a sample from the Wildflower ebook: Outdoor Hour Challenge Wildflower Ebook #3.
