I love Spring… fresh green leaves on the once bare trees, flowers bursting forth and the warm breezes. A couple weeks ago I had the priveledge of attending a Miracle-Gro event at a local Home Depot. With Spring in full swing, the event was put on to share about ways to save water using water wise plants and products. Here is Southern California having plants that don’t take a lot of watering is a necessity. So Miracle-Gro participated in this awesome event.
There were plent of gorgeous flowers like the Purple Rose Robinia tree with the gorgeous hanging flowers (one of my favorites).
There were succulents, shrubs, ground cover, trees and plenty of flowers.
There was plenty of fun for the kiddos with a bounce house, free hot dogs, drinks and popcorn. There were also vendors from the local water district and nurseries sharing value information with customers.
And of course there was building fun for the little ones… birdhouses and little toolboxes. I love Kangeroo Paws (the bottom left). They take very little water and have wonderful vibrant color.
There was plenty of Miracle-Gro Moisture Contol Potting Mix which helps to adsorb water which prevents both over watering and underwatering.
And because I love Spring and flowers so much I created a free printable for you guys!
