Spring is truly in the air! Flowers bursting with color and fragrance abound, and understandably attuning to their energy is a celebration of growth, fertility, life, and love. This natural excitement is contagious and provides us an amazing opportunity to share the jubilance of the season with loved ones.
We purchased a small perennial for each participant in our May Festival. Then, we drew names at random for each of the following:
- which flowers for each person to plant
- which person for whom it would be dedicated
The day before the holiday, we did the actual planting, creating a lovely little garden.
The day of the celebration, we each took turns introducing our plant and then dedicating it to our randomly selected family member. These were very touching ways to share our appreciation for one another.
Now every spring when our flowers reemerge we can share a special connection to both the perennial we planted and the one dedicated to us. In addition, every time we look at or tend to our garden, it will always serve as a beautiful reminder of all of our loved ones and this wonderful spring day.
