Nature walk to Tymon Park with Éanna Ní Lamhna

April 30, 2018 · No Comments

Today we went on a walk to Tymon Park with Éanna Ní Lamhna. We learned how male ducks have green heads & females have brown heads. We looked at different flowers and learned why daisies are called so; days eye, because they open their petals in day time and close them at night. We saw a rare flower called cowslip and learned how dandelions were used to make medicine. We also looked for insects in leaves on certain trees. We did this by holding an umbrella upside down & shook the leaves into it to see what insects fell out.
