Spring is well and truly happening and Room 13 is getting into the spring spirit. We are growing plants for the Butterfly Garden.
Room 13 and Room 10 are in charge of caring for the Butterfly Garden. We grow plants that attract butterflies and bees and birds.

The Swan plants took a loooong time to germinate. Our estimates of the time they would take to germinate were all wrong. They took more than a month! and not a lot of them sprouted.

But we will have enough to plant in the butterfly garden when they are big enough, and they will attract monarch butterflies. 

We planted a sunflower that Lulu brought to school.
Sarah brought some calendula seeds and they sprouted on our deck over the school holidays. We planted them in the Butterfly Garden as well.
