Decoration Day

  Earlier in the Spring I set up flower arranging on a shelf.  A basket for gathering flowers, scissors for cutting and trimming, doilies, a small pitcher of water, and small vases (often jars salvaged from the recycling bin)  The girls enjoy this work year after year.  Recently we also did flower pressing, drawing still life flowers and decorating Grandpa's grave.  This week we will add dissecting a flower and labeling the parts.  It is amazing how much you can do with something that grows right outside your door..
