Life Lessons from the Garden, with Sharon Chader

Our residents enjoyed the wide variety of beautiful flowers home-grown by Mrs. Sharon Chader. We learned how fun and easy it is to make our own floral arrangements

In July we were lucky enough to have volunteer, Mrs. Sharon Chader, do a demo on floral arrangements.

She has beautiful gardens at home and spent the morning clipping buckets and buckets of blooms to bring to Primrose.

She began her demo with two floral arrangements, making analogies to the lives of flowers with our personal lives. It was very enlightening to listen to all of her comments and her techniques for arranging flowers.

After she created her first two arrangements, she distributed the rest of the flowers to the residents and provided them with vases.

Everyone had a wonderful time creating their own floral arrangements. For days after, when walking the halls of Primrose, one could see beautiful arrangements decorating the entryways of each resident’s door. We saw so many smiles during this activity and would love to have Sharon return with her beautiful flowers next summer!
