Flowers for Teacher




"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings.  The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child." ~ Carl Jung

 
 
 
For the past several years, we have honored the children's teachers at the end of the year with a gift of flowers.



 


In years past, I have found a creative container and filled it with a fresh arrangement. This year, though, I was so taken with pink and white peonies I found at our local Fresh Market that I decided to keep the presentation simple.

 
 
 


What could compete with these lush, showy blooms?



 


Emma and I picked up crystal vases from TJ Maxx with our elementary and middle school teachers in mind.



 


We will present our bouquets during this week's end-of-year parties and programs.



 


Along with hugs and thanks for a great year of school.



"Teachers who inspire know that teaching is like cultivating a garden, and those who would have nothing to do with thorns must never attempt to gather flowers." ~ Author Unknown

Boy, I wish I were the girls' teachers! These are gorgeous.

Speaking of gorgeous, I bought the recent issue of "Victoria" as well as a special on cottage homes put out by "Victoria" and "Southern Lady" and some other magazines from that family. Knowing you are there makes me want to read them even more.

XO,

Sheila
