Plant Observation Journal Part 2

(This is the continuation of the journal we started at the beginning of this Summer.)

August 4th, 2011
We had pretty much given up on our plants. They were mostly dead, but two of them have gone from brown to green. The already growing marigold has many buds. Our sunflower has started buds too!

August 11th, 2011
Our plant must be tasty because we caught a grasshopper eating our sunflower today. Lucky for us, and him, it was a stem without a bud. So, we still have two buds. Yeah!

August 26th, 2011
Our buds are getting very close to opening on both plants. We are very excited. You can already see the yellow on the marigold.

OK, I admit it, I'm not perfect! I kind of forgot to keep exact dates after that last one. We did continue to take care of our plants and the flowers did bloom.
The marigold opened first.

A few days later our sunflower opened.

This was a successful, scientific journey for Pie Pie and Pants! A+ for everyone!
