Your Garden in All Four Seasons


Seasonal Garden Notes Ideas from the newsletter

“Nature study should be a matter of observation on the part of the pupils. The teacher’s part is to indicate points for observation and not to tell what is to be seen.”

~Anna Botsford Comstock in Suggestions for Nature Study Work

Our yards and gardens tell an ever-changing story from season to season. It is a story of birth, life, and then death, leading to rebirth the next year. It is a intertwining story of plants, insects, birds, animals, and our family too.

It is a delight to learn the story that unfolds as we work from spring and on into summer. Take a few minutes this week to make those important observations together as a family, learning the story of your garden.

I have created a follow-up notebook page for children to use if they desire. You will find it in this month’s Handbook of Nature Study newsletter which is free to subscribers. It is also found in the Ultimate Naturalist’s Library and in the Journey level of membership here on the Handbook of Nature Study (Scroll down on your membership page to the Printables section.)

  1. Thanks for all of your work. You mention I can can find notebook pages on this months newsletter. I can’ t find the newsletter for May. thanks

    1. If you are a member, the newsletter is in the members area in the newsletter section. You will just need to log into your account and then go to the members area on the blog.

      The newsletter link each month comes in a separate email to subscribers on the first day of the month. If you are a subscriber, it will come to you automatically. I have had a few people say the email went to their spam box.

      1. So membership and monthly newsletter is not free anymore? Thanks Friederike

        1. The newsletter is still free to subscribers. It has always been available to subscribers. You can subscribe by putting your email into the box at the top of the blog. On the first of the month, you will receive an email with the newsletter download link it. You will need to get that email and download the newsletter. Nothing has changed except that the newsletter link will be sent in a separate email instead of having the link in every email during the month.

          One of the benefits to purchasing the new Ultimate Naturalist Library is that you have access to every single newsletter I have ever published.

          Hope that explains it a little better.

  2. Thanks so much. I couldn’t find the link to the newsletter. But I get all the other regular weekly emails. Thanks
