Taco Tues - National Plant A Flower Day
12 March 2019, 18:30 - 20:00
It's Taco Tuesday - National Plant a Flower day.
National Plant a Flower Day is observed each year on March 12.
Spring is just around the corner, and March 12th is the day to participate in National Plant a Flower Day. Each year this day is dedicated to the planting of flowers and looking forward to the spring season. Flower gardening has become a hobby for many, young and old, and National Plant a Flower Day is a start to the new season each year.
In 17th century Holland, a house could be purchased for tulips, and flowers have also been an integral part of various religions and mythologies and their traditions and rituals. Could you even imagine a wedding reception without the bouquet toss? Would there be any Christmas without poinsettias? What would poets and painters do without the flowers that have inspired them to create countless works of art? From the simple daisy to the elegant rose, and from the colorful wildflowers dotting hillsides to the elaborate and vibrant flowers of southeastern Asia, flowers have more than deserved their own day though for their contributions to art, culture, and life.
HOW TO CELEBRATE PLANT A FLOWER DAY
The best way to celebrate Plant a Flower Day is to plant a flower, or perhaps even many flowers! Depending on where you’re located in the world, March may or may not be the best time to be planting anything, but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a flowerpot and do it at home. So if it is nice and warm in March where you live, set a little bit of time aside on this holiday to sow some seeds in your yard or garden. This could also serve as the perfect time to take your children outside and explain a bit about how nature works its magic, what helps plants grow, why we need them, and what we can do to help protect out planet from pollution. Instilling a sense of wonder for the world in your children will help them appreciate the planet and make them more aware of their surroundings—plus, what could be more fun than spending a sunny day outside with your favorite little people and planting lupins, poppies or fuchsias? And even if your part of the world is cold and dreary this time of year, you can still enjoy a day of learning about nature and all it has to offer humankind. Like flowers themselves, Plant a Flower Day was meant to be enjoyed.
