O send out thy light and thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto thy holy hill, and to thy tabernacles. Psalms 43:3

And as all have not faith, seek ye diligently and teach one another words of wisdom; yea, seek ye out of the best books words of wisdom; seek learning, even by study and also by faith. D&C 88:118

Flower Power Science...

While exploring a science book on my shelf, probably the Usborne Book of Science Experiments, Tiger discovered an experiment involving paper flowers and water. What could be more fun than a sink full of water for science! Tiger cut out a flower shape, drew a drawing in the middle, folded the petals in and placed the flower on the surface of the water. Slowly the flower opens to reveal the center. When it was Pumpkin Pie's turn, she drew a bug in the inside. Even Strawberry put a flower in the sink.  In her case, there was water splashed on top of two petals. One had a large drop and the other was half wet on top including the edge. The petal with a drop took longer than all the other petals and the one with water on the side never opened. It was interesting to see how the paper absorbed the water drawing the petals open.
