It was so much fun this Spring, to introduce my five-month-old granddaughter to her very first flower. Linley was captivated by the bright blue color of the delicate Siberian Iris. Lightly, she touched the soft petals with her sweet, chubby little fingers. She looked at me and smiled. Hopefully, that was the beginning of our sharing a love of nature and especially flowers together. Her mom is teaching Linley to share her love of animals, as well.
It is important to share our passion for the world around us with children. To make them aware of the blessings that surround us. To help them to appreciate the calming effect that experiencing natural beauty has on our stress levels.
