There is no shortage of national days. It seems that instead of hallmark holidays we now have social media holidays. Anything for a new hashtag. There are a handful of these we can get behind. None more than National Plant a Flower Day, #PlantaFlowerDay
It is kind of what we do after all. The big day isn’t until Saturday so you have some time to plan. Get to the store, buy a plant or seed and get them in the ground. Intention certainly counts so even just buying some seed bombs for planting in a few weeks is a good way to spend National Plant a Flower Day.
Those of you that already have seed bombs we would love to see where you plant them. Just tag us on social media and use the hashtag, #throwandgrow.
