Hannah, Ethan, and Andrew gave me a beautiful card and flowers for Mother's Day. They have been proudly sitting on my kitchen table since then and every day Hannah points to them and makes a comment about the pretty card and flowers. Once she even tried to climb right up onto the table and see them.
|My beautiful present|
Unfortunately, cut flowers don't last forever and I knew it was really getting close to the time when I needed to get rid of them, which is usually several days after I should have done it.
|Sad, droopy flowers.|
After car painting (a post I did earlier, have a look here), I thought it might be fun to paint with flowers too. I chose two of the better flowers (less droopy) and checked to make sure there were no thorns on the stems. Then I put out some paint and paper for Hannah and I to use.
Next, I quickly painted on some green stems for Hannah and I.
Next, we dipped our flowers in the paint and swirled the flowers a bit to make sure they were covered well and pressed the paint covered flower onto the paper.
Now I can enjoy my mother's day flowers even longer.
