I was fortunate to volunteer at my local high school Spring Flower fundraising event which took place yesterday at the Maple Grove Arboretum. We had a hand full of volunteers to unload baskets, pots and spices from the truck. These flowers were delivered from LYDNE garden and Landscape nursery which is not very far from the area.
The volunteers were all in smiles and did an excellent job as directed by the lead. The colors of the flowers from several variety brighten the day. One could only imagine having raspberry lemonade while arranging them in different pots when they arrive home.
Springtime is the best time to plant flowers in certain areas in the Midwest. Fruit trees are also planted during this period although most like to plant trees during Fall when their roots settles into the newly transplanted land before Winter. Then they’ll be ready to sprung their branches and petals during upcoming Spring.
Spring Flower fundraising is always a hit and I’ll encourage others to check with their local schools/nurseries for ideas like this to help raise funds for their school programs.
