*Joey and William will be guests here on the blog as they document our Nature Challenge journey for 2016.
The Challenge: Visit the Urban Xeriscape Garden near downtown Kingsville. Walk through the garden and find as many different types of plant leaf shapes as possible, while marking off the leaf types we find.
J: We took a walk through the city park. I had a clipboard with a sheet of leaf types. We identified each leaf we saw not by its name (we knew their names by their signs) but instead by their leaf type.
W: I had to ride in the stroller because I was still recovering from my surgery. I helped Joey identify leaf types.
J: We sat on a bench and we saw A LOT of bird poop. Then we looked up and saw why. There were a ton of mourning doves. Mystery of bird poop solved.
W: My favorite plant we saw was the Firecracker plant.
J: I liked the wishing weed we found and wished on. It was neat to see plants that grow in this area easily. Now we know what we can plant. Okay, until next time!
One thought on “Coastal Bend Nature Challenge: Urban Xeriscape Garden”
I giggled more than ever here. Can they help me identify the plants I have in my “garden”?
