Hello Gardeners! With #MothersDay and #FathersDay just around the corner, now is the perfect time to remind ourselves of those special mentors in our lives and about how much they mean to us. It doesn’t matter if these individuals aren’t biologically our parents - all that matters is that they have helped us pull our weeds, plant new seeds, and water our flowers! Sometimes it might be easy to forget, but our babysitters, coaches, teachers, parents, uncles, grandmothers - every adult in your life has weeds! Gardens have no expiration dates and weeds have no age limits. They grow with us and the types of weeds and flowers change as our lives progress. If you ever notice that one of those special people seems down or a little blue, be there for them! Show them the same support you would a fellow gardener that is your age.
Here are a few things that you could do to brighten their day:
-Write them a nice note
-Draw them a picture
-Help out around the house - put your dishes in the dishwasher, clean up the floor of your bedroom, take the garbage out
-Make them a handmade bouquet of wildflowers
-Set the table for dinner
Something to show them that you are there and you are thinking about them!
We would love to hear about your mentors or the special things you did to say thanks. Shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or tag us @youareagardener. Thanks for tuning in gardeners and remember to #PullYourWeeds!
