Welcoming May With Flowers & A Challenge

The first time I heard this quote “April Shower Brings May Flowers” was from my husband when I experienced Spring for the first time in 2009. I did not quite understand at the first time, but after rainy days, I then understood. And also it from one of the stories about a boar named May Flowers.

In th last couple of weeks my daughter who is at Kindergarten told me about how she learned planting flowers at school and told me about the quote she learned. 2 weeks ago she kept asking her Papa to take her to store to buy Sun flower seeds so she can have a Sun flower garden this year, so they did. the planted at least 3 kinds of Sun flowers.

Sun flowers is low maintenance plant. And we hope to see the flowers and enjoy them when we come back from our Summer Mission Trip.
