All Campus Gardens Blooming

on April 23, 2013

4th and 5th graders were surprised this week to see the fourth grade garden with an abundance of blooming red emperor tulips.   The tulip blooms in the back of the school are a few weeks behind  the flower beds in the front of the school.    Students discussed the differences between the southern and northern exposure of the sun.  The front of the school that has a southern exposure receives sunlight throughout the day.   The tulip bloom in 2013 was a few weeks behind the tulip bloom of 2012.  Students recognized this was probably a difference in temperature and climate.   We have had a really cold spring in the northeast.  (just ask any parent attending their child’s baseball or lacrosse game early saturday morning)

check out what is happening in journey north gardens throughout the country and the world.
