Spring Flowers – contest for our families

Spring time is here and flowers are in bloom.

Spring Flowers - contest for our families

One of my favorite things to do in spring has always been to plant a flower garden with children. As part of my educational curriculum I had the children in my child care bring home a pot of flower seeds they planted. I encouraged parents to transplant the pot of flower seeds as they began to grow in their yard and watch the flowers grow with their children!  Take time through the seasons to count with your child how many flowers bloomed – teaching child hands-on math lessons.

My favorite flowers to plant were morning glories because they bloomed for so many months and looked beautiful climbing my lamp post.

Thank you to everyone who submitted their favorite flower and why!  Congratulations to Amy Grant for her winning entry!

We actually have two favorite flowers, the Rose and the Lily.  Our daughter’s name is Madelyn Rose Grant, and she certainly is our beautiful little Rose!  Also, we are currently expecting our second daughter, and plan to name her Lilyana, and call her Lily.  We have a beautiful rose garden at home and my husband just planted some lilies in it as well!  We can’t wait for the arrival of our little one and feel so blessed that we will have two little girls!  So for that reason, roses and lilies will always be our favorites! ????

She chose “New England Chapel” as the charity to win $50 and Amy also won $50!

Thanks for participating!
