Peach Blossoms 2016

 It's the time of year that everything is in bloom and this year, we were lucky enough to get permission to go out to Buttermilk Creek Farm in Alamance County and see the peach trees up close. 
 It's no surprise that the trees were literally buzzing with honeybees hard at work.
 The kids were able to get up close and examine the trees and blossoms.
 They drew pictures in their nature journals and made observations about the trees.

 They also found a ton of peach pits on the ground from last year's harvest.
 The blossoms were just so stunning, it was hard to leave them behind.
But we'll be back in a few months to collect them when they've become big, ripe peaches!
