The prairie in the valley around my farm is so beautiful today. Everywhere I look there are flowers blooming, so many colors, pinks, purples, whites, blues, and yellows. I don’t know if my nose can survey all the flowers for my research I might sneeze a giant boulder onto our barn by the cliffs as Dad says. He thinks my sneezes might create an avalanche that comes down the bluffs onto our house. I know he is kidding but Mom’s sneezes are much worse she has a double one. She starts with a tiny, mouse-sized, sneeze that is followed by an enormous, dinosaur blast. I am sorry I got a little lost here the topic is my Smell Project.
The good new is I did get to smell the Phlox blooming in the prairie and the Lilac bushes blooming by my house. I like the smell of both flowers so it is hard to decide which one scores the highest.
I think according to my smell chart, I rank both flowers as LOVELY.
Maybe I need to redo my chart since I am ranking a lot of flowers
as LOVELY lately.
It is very well known to you by now that I am conducting
a serious, smell research project. Today, I compared the Tulip,
Daffodil, and Alium.
It was not easy to decide which flower smells the best.
After several samples I have smelled, several sneezes, and a
runny nose I can announce that all three flowers are very pretty.
But the more important news is I am pleased to announce I have ranked the flowers by smell.
A. The Daffodil by itself is hard to smell.
B. The Tulip does not smell at all by itself either.
C.. Alium does not smell, but if you accidentally step on one
and crush it, when you are avoiding a certain Red Squirrel,
you will notice that the smell is not so great.
THE RESULTS OF THE SMELL RESEARCH
1. Daffodil – ranks OKAY
2. Tulip – ranks OKAY
3. Alium – YUCK!
Thank you. Please Enjoy.
As you know I am always working on my GREAT Smell
Research project. It is very difficult work and I am very well
qualified for this mission. No one asked me to this but some day Kirby said maybe all my research will be used to make the world a smellier place. I didn’t write that in the journal Kirby did but I’ll leave it this time because it is funny. Myles and I will get
Today I review the smells of two Spring flowers:
1) The Crocus
2) The Hyacinth
The results are in. Upon further review I rate
The flowers as follows:
1. I rate the Hyacinth’s smell as LOVELY.
2. I rate the Crocus’s smell as PRETTY.
Congratulations to both flowers!
The crocuses are blooming around our farm house. We did not plant them, the flowers came with the house!
I can’t wait to start my smell research project again. As you know one of my favorite flower smells is the one that smells like Chocolate.
I think I would like to make my own perfume with Wisconsin prairie flowers.
I am excited that Earth Day is coming soon!!!
I can’t believe it I found a flower in the prairie that smells like chocolate. It is a pretty yellow flower with 10 petals and a pretty orange center. My mom told me that the yellow flower is part of a plant genus called Rudbeckia, and that the center of the flower is made up of parts called the stigma, pistil and stamen. In my journal I am going to draw a diagram of a flower with the names of all the parts. I will let you know when I am done.
I am giving this chocolate smelling flower my highest ranking on my smell chart lovely!
Dear Diary, I added one of my favorite flowers to my smell project today. I love the Chickory flowers they are so beautiful bluish purple, and look like pompoms. I have never smelled them before so I was excited. I put my nose down into the flower and took a big whiff, nothing. The Chickory flower is so beautiful but does not smell. That’s okay they are still one of my favorite flowers. I think my next research project I will make a list of my favorite flowers that do not smell.
