We're working on detail and attention and more importantly, visualization.
Her second opportunity, with me guiding this time, is much better. She looked at it more closely and saw details that I don't think she paid attention to before.
We have a pencil, "yellow ochre" (which immediately takes my mind on a field trip to "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat") that is almost the exact color of the bud. I pointed that out to her, and spotlighted that when the tree blooms, the blooms will be white, not yellow ochre. I can't wait to see the blooms. (I'm not sure she's excited about them.)
