How 15 Plants Looked in April Compared to June

Each TDSB group had a walk at Crother’s Woods in early spring. It is an excellent place to see wildflowers.

NATURE POETRY

These fresh beauties, we can prove,
Once were virgins, sick of love,
Turn’d to flowers: still in some,
Colours go and colours come. – Robert Herrick
