Get Dirty -- Plant Something

“I must have flowers, always, and always.” 
― Claude Monet

Peggy Klitzke, Master Gardner, presented a flower experience for the ladies at the Salvation Army recently.  Prepared tables had mounds of potting soil, pebbles and sunny yellow and apple red flowers for planting. [Peggy emphasized importance pebbles for good drainage].

“Getting Dirty-Plant Something” was a fun time learning about flowers and planting while also hearing the name meaning of some flowers such as:

Aster-contentment: Philippians 4;11 “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content”,

Calla Lily-beauty, purity . “The lilies of the field, even Solomon in all his glory was not as beautiful as one of these.” Matthew 6:28,29

Gardenia-purity, sweetness [conveying joy] “whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.” Philippians 4:8

Finished the planting experience with ‘Mud Pie’?  Mud Pie is creamy pudding in a clay pot topped with crumbled chocolate cookies and sweet & sour gummy worms hiding below the crumbles.  Bon Appetite’ to an afternoon with the Salvation Army women Major Martha Davey helping to chase the youngest planter 16 month toddler curious about the potting soil and pebbles.
