Who doesn’t love flowers? Well, my boys don’t but my daughter just plain adores flowers. They’re so pretty she says. I love them too because our winters are so long and we long for those bright colors outdoors. This also means the beginning of the gardening season which is too short here in Ontario.
My dream would be to have an indoor greenhouse so I could start my seeds indoors. Unfortunately, my lighting in the house isn’t too great so I have to wait to buy plants in the spring to get my garden going.
If you’re looking forward to spring, you’ll love these flower activities for preschoolers.
