Winter already?! Not yet, but it’s the time of year when nature (and that includes us!) prepares for it. Are you excited for winter, or perhaps you’re dreading it? Whatever your stance, how do you mentally and physically approach the coldest, darkest season? Maybe you’ve pulled out warmer clothes and put away shorts and tees, or increased your time outdoors while it’s still light out. Perhaps you’re thinking of trying out a new season ritual this year! In biology, “deciduous” describes trees that release or shed their leaves at the end of the growing season. Before the leaves fall, the tree collects their nutrients, storing them in its roots to prepare for a potentially harsh winter or dry season. Follow the steps below to create your own winter birch tree painting!
