We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate spring and warm weather here at Primrose of Mankato, Minnesota than to plant some beautiful spring flowers! Early in the month, we held a craft day and hand painted some clay pots. We had everything from polka dots, to stripes, to flowers! We all had fun being creative and experimenting with different paints and color combinations to decorate our pots! Later in the month, we took a bus to a local garden center for a morning trip to pick out and purchase beautiful blooms to finish off our custom pots. Everyone found something they liked and brought it back to Primrose. Later in the day, we all got together and planted our plants in our pots with our Life Enrichment Coordinator, Haley. It was a beautiful day to be outside planting flowers!
