RE: Spring pictures

Well thank you, Lynda. I just can't stand the thought of little ones
living in places that are barren of any plant life for them to
experience up close and personal in a hands on way. How sad!

Melody, those children - all of them - are so lucky to have you in
their<br>lives, even if for only for an enlightening afternoon.

[CHAT] Spring pictures<br><br><br>It has been misery here...can't
believe how cold it is. Supposed to be<br>low of 29 degrees here tonight
and when I was out for my break at 2<br>a.m., I'm sure it was close to
that. Brrr...had my team's first softball<br>practice Monday night. Poor
little girls (grades 3 &amp; 4)...I had to keep<br>them moving all
during practice to keep them warm enough. Next practice<br>is Wed...hope
it warms up by then...took me the rest of the night on<br>Monday just to
get warm again. Got loads of plants that are sitting on<br>my covered
front porch waiting to go into the ground...just too darned<br>cold
here. So far, most of the blooming things in my yard have been<br>fine,
but tonight I'm sure I'll lose the blooms on the bleeding hearts<br>and
all my miniature white iris, as well as whatever aquilegia's
are<br>flowering already. I'm sure I'll be checking damage when I get
home in<br>the a.m. Well, I guess the MG's here didn't catch on that I
didn't get<br>my educational hours all completed last year because I am
still on their<br>active member list. Got a call this past week to do a
short 30 minute<br>presentation for pre-schoolers ages 3-5 at a local
Head Start program...<br>I am such a sucker for kids...how could I say
no???? Anyway, got some<br>cool coloring pages off the web for their
teacher to photocopy after I'm<br>gone but also one of the local
nurseries donated some wheat grass and<br>some giant sunflower seeds.
We're going to plant the sunflowers outside<br>in the daycare's little
garden and then grow wheat grass &quot;hair&quot; in<br>styrofoam cups
that the kid's will decorate with faces. Two groups of 28<b

r>and 35 kids apiece...so I needed quick and easy! Many of these
are<br>underpriveleged children who have no access at home to gardens,
so I<br>can't wait to give them a chance to grow something and see what
that<br>feels like!<br><br><br>Melody <br>Hills, IA zone
