Several glass jars filled with water were the perfect size for small hands to do some flower arranging when my five year old friend Audrey came for a visit.
We took my flower basket down into the garden to pick some flowers and I showed her how to pull the leaves off the lower part of the stems.
The arranging was all Audrey’s and it was fascinating watching her at work choosing what she put together. I love the ‘looseness’of the arrangements.
That evening I had visitors coming for dinner and arranged all the vases on a wooden tray with some tea lights – a happy colourful display for a winter Sunday supper.
Very sweet – I love to do the same thing with my little neighbor who is now 7. Instill the love of flowers while they are young!
