These are some of the plants that are growing this month. We picked some, putthem in a tub of water and froze them. Then bashed them with rolling pins to get the plants out!!
The teasels are flowering and are becoming stripey. Very much like the bumble bees that are coming to visit them.
Our pond area is full of dragon flies, mayflies and damsel flies. We have been watching how they fly and hover. They can fly up to 60 mph !
We then made our own out of pegs and tracing paper, carefully drawing in all the veins in the wings. Lastly we stuck on the huge eyes. Most of a dragonflies’s head is eye! They have amazing vision which makes them efficient hunters.
