“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
