May 30th is Water a Flower Day
you're looking for something to do today then quench the thirst of some
flowers because it's Water a Flower Day! I'm sure they'll
appreciate the random bath! Let's get right into celebrating
Water a Flower Day!
WHY IS THIS A
Today is a holiday because sometimes we need a reminder to
our plants or maybe we just need to pick up where the April showers
left off! We have all these "May flowers" so why don't we try our best
to keep them alive, right? It's starting to get hotter and hotter, so
I'm sure the flowers around you can use a drink. So today's the day to
give them a splash or two to show them you care, and maybe keep the
splashing going all summer! But why should you care about
flowers, right? Well, they look good don't they? They add nice
splotches of color all over the landscape, so that's one reason to keep
them around. Plus they smell pretty good too. So if you like occasional
wafts of floral scents then you might want to water some flowers today.
But good looks and scents aren't the only benefits of flowers.
of them are actually edible! You might want to toss some in a salad or
soup or just keep them around for other animals to munch on. And hey,
you do realize what flowers bring, right? If you treat your plants
right and then they flower, eventually (depending on the plant) a fruit
or vegetable is going to appear! So without flowers we wouldn't have a
lot of our tasty treats either. And hey, bees and butterflies love
flowers too. So if you're down with honey and fluttering butterflies
then keep their places of interest alive with a splash of water today.
Do you have your watering pail ready?
So, how can you celebrate today? Well, if you have a bunch of
flowers around your house then break out the hose or watering pail and
get to it! Enjoy the fresh air and nature sounds as you water them
down. You might be surprised at all the different kinds of flowers you
have in your yard. And hey, it doesn't hurt to talk to them while you
water them; they will appreciate the carbon dioxide ;). But
you don't have your own flowers then how about you have a little fun
with today. Fill up a couple water jugs and bring your watering can
with you and then hop in your car and start searching for some nice
flowers. When you find some that really catch your eye then hop out and
water them. It doesn't matter where they are or whose they are, just
give them a watering. If anyone comes out and asks you what you're
doing just tell them what day it is, that you really appreciate the
flowers and wanted to make sure they stay alive. Even the meanest
person couldn't turn you away with an explanation like that!
if you really want to go all out you can take things indoors. If any of
your friends have flowers in a vase or a pot then give them a shot of
fresh water. I'm sure they'll wonder what you're up to but you can just
give them the same explanation. If you really want to shock people, go
to a store with a garden section or a greenhouse and ask one of the
employees if you can water their flowers ;). I hope you enjoy
your day and make it a wet one!
