The only bad thing about having a greenhouse attached to my classroom is that I have to go in a few times over school vacations to water the plants. Once I get there, I love to look around at all the beautiful flowers in bloom and escape from the wind and brisk temperatures outside. Today, I focused on zinnias, sunflowers and morning glories for a dose of summer color. Afterall, it is perpetually summer in the greenhouse.
We’ll also start some vegetable seedlings when we go back to school next week, but for now, the greenhouse is full of the flowers my class has nurtured since January.
