Kids and Roses! State Flowers of the United States
My name is George- I’m a conservationist and this year I have been involved in starting and running a youth gardening club. Our garden is now looking fantastic and I’m so happy with how popular this venture has been with my young gardeners, it is great to see the positive impact it has had on the kids in terms of physical and mental health as well as building a community feeling.
The articles on growing roses were such a huge help to us when we introduced roses to our garden and your links page led us to some great informative rose organizations – so I just wanted to say thanks for helping us out.
Last week I tasked the kids with doing research projects on a flower/gardening topic of their choice and one of my kids, Alice, decided to research into the different state flowers and found this page https://www.titlemax.com/discovery-center/the-ultimate-road-trip/state-flowers-of-the-united-states/ . She thought it would be nice to send it to you and maybe your site users would find it interesting to have a look at it- the rose is the national flower of the USA and different roses are the state flower of several states! If you decide to add it to your page let me know, I know she would be excited to see her research has been appreciated by gardening experts.
