The weather at first was snowing and very cold. Then it changed to rain, and then to hail. The ground was very icy, crunchy, and slippery. Which we had to be very carful where we stepped. We thought the plant would look a lot different then the one that we found. We smelled rain and the pine trees. We think that we found it because it was about the right height and had the same leaves. We also thought that the plant we found would look different. We were happy because we think we found our plant. We saw trees, dirt, plants, snow, ice, and rain. We heard the crunching over the snow, cars, and children talking. We smelled pine trees, exhaust, and air. The questions and problems we ran into were we thought another plant could be it.
We think that we have found Redtwig Dogwood because the leaf had a pointed tip and round edges, our Vital Signs ID card says that in the fall the leaves turn a purplish red color and that is what our leaf looked like.
We also think that we found Redtwig Dogwood because our Vital Signs ID card shows a picture of small flowers about one cm in diameter. We found what we think is those flowers. The stem, branches, and twigs of the Redtwig Dogwood are usually red, but can change to green in the spring.
