Field Notes
It was rainy and cold outside. It was not a good day to be outside. We walked on the powerline road behind our school and it had a lot of trees and leaves. We are happy because we found what we were looking for and it smells really good. We didn't find any with red berries but after a while we found one with red berries. We weren't suprised about anything.
