Stephanie and I combined our classes today for an activity of winter sowing native wildflowers. We teamed up one Muon with two quarks to fill containers with soil and seeds and then covered them with saran wrap to help retain heat and water. Stephanie explained how the seeds need winter to help them wake up in the spring and hopefully after a few more solid months of cold everyone will have some new flowers to plant!

 It was so beautiful to watch the muons instinctively know when to lead and help and when to give the littles their independence in handling soil,  spelling the flower names and offer simple encouragement and support. And the quarks were their usual wise and goofy selves!

We missed the muons who left early and hope y’all made it home safely!
