We had a very small outdoor program a couple of weeks ago.  Only 3 children attended but look what they accomplished with a little co-operation.  The rhododendrons were starting to shed their blooms so the children collected flowers and decorated what was already a beautiful magical play space underneath the trees.

Two weeks later we returned to the spot only to find the flowers were gone.  Why?  This was a good opportunity to learn that flowers cannot survive when they no longer are growing on the shrub.  Disappointing but true.

So glad we captured the experience as it happened!  I wonder if anyone else happened upon this fairy land before the blooms started to decompose…
