Gardens and Moms

Tomorrow is "National Public Gardens Day!"
For more information go to:
You can also go to:
These sites will give you info
on gardens in your areas that
are participating tomorrow.
The best part is it is FREE!!!!
Go check these out and take a
walk in a garden near YOU!
On a different note: I wanted
to show you what my students
made for their Mom's. "Rag"
wreaths.
I provided small hoops and
fabric which I cut into strips.
With the help of an adult, each
child help tie the fabric to the
hoops. They did a great job!
Here is the one I made. I
made mine with a print
and a solid. To make things
easier the kids used one
print. I think they are so
cute. I hope their Mom's
like them.
Happy Mom's Day !

  3. So glad you keep me up to date on all the "special" holidays. I just visited the rose garden last weekend so I will try to get pictures ready to post for tomorrow. It all takes longer without Picnik, so hopefully I have enough time to get the photos ready.

  5. I'm delighted to celebrate Public Gardens Month. We have a community garden a couple of blocks from my house and I enjoy going there and sitting among the flowers right in the middle of the city. Take good care!

  7. Great project!
    Those wreaths are going to be a big hit with the moms, and something that they will always cherish.

    Love that public gardens are celebrating...just in time for Mother's Day!!
    Mom's and flowers usually go hand in hand :)

    Have a great weekend, and a happy Mother's Day!
