Do you have a green thumb? Or are you like me, with not such a green thumb. I don’t garden well. I love to look at flowers, but can’t grow them very well. I do better with potted plants.
Several years ago, when my daughter was just a year old, my English student invited us to go with her to a park that has a huge, sprawling, and very famous rose garden. The day before it had rained and rained. But the day of our planned excursion it was sunny and warm so off we went! Actually, it turned out to be hot and muggy.
My daughter was hot and miserable in her stroller. As soon as we came upon any rain puddle she’d want to get down and play in it. By the end of the day she was quite wet and a bit muddy, but that is what I will always remember that day by. Sure, I remember the beautiful roses. But I will remember that day as the day my daughter played happily in rain puddles, surrounded by a famous rose garden.
Do you have a special memory that somehow is connected with flowers? I would love to hear about it. This month’s Boutique Collaboration, Roots and Wings, is perfect for a page about flowers and gardening.
Here are the rules:
>> Scrap a page about a memory or experience with flowers.
>> Your photos should include at least one picture of the flowers.
>> The name of the flowers must be in the title of your page.
>> Use whatever scrapbooking supplies you have on hand. (You don’t have to use something from our shop in order to participate here.)
>> Come on back and share your work with us! If you do, your layout could be featured in next week’s post!
That’s it! Our rules are simple. There aren’t any other requirements aside from that. However, if you would like to earn points toward free products, this challenge does qualify for Chicky Points. (See the Challenges Forum for more details.) The deadline to get the Chicky Points is May 31st, midnight EST.
