Peer reviewed by The Chipmunks
It's Monday morning about 10:15 And it's a beautiful day, around 45 degrees and partly cloudy but mostly sunny and really cold. We heard, saw, and smelled all sorts of different things. We heard cars and trucks, the chatter of other class mates, and the Riesling of the leaves. We saw different wild life, such as trees, berries, flowers, and other students. It smelled fresh and crisp, and like garbage in the morning breeze. We were very close to a road and a stream. It was a hard to identify what species our plant was because it had berries that looked the same as the Alder Buckthorn, but the leaves where a little different that was one challenge that our group had
We think we found the common buckthorn because it has leaves about 8 cm long with gagged edges, and oval shaped. Also it has pairs of veins that point downward and connect at the bottom, because of these thing we think we found it.
Another piece of evidence we have is that we found a stem about 5.4 cm. And light brown with little specks. The twigs are grayish with sharp thorns at the tip.
