The Weather Tree

Another post that is in response to a Tweet we received.

So, here's something we did a fair few years ago...

To start with, the tree is empty and each day a leaf is added. The colour of the leaf is dependant on the temperature outside. On the leaf, other observations and readings about the weather can be added. 

What is creates is a very visual display of the temperature changes across the year. On closer inspection, further information about the day's weather can also be seen.

The leaves were kept in coloured pouches at the bottom that had the key written on them to explain what the colours referred to.
