Yesterday I took the kids & the dogs on a walk about the neighborhood. It was my first time doing this - all 3 kids+ 2 dogs sans stroller. We had great success & did it again today.
Anyway. In their liberated state of being strollerless, the kiddos were gathering things on the sidewalk, such as rotted flower blooms.
Then we came to a neighbor who is a fellow flower lady. She saw the collection & wanted to add to it. She cut some blooms from her garden & gathered from her table. We came home & arranged them for our own table.
