A Token Of Love

My sweet grandson is in the National FFA whilst in his junior year of high school.
The National FFA Organization (also known as Future Farmers of America) is dedicated to making a positive difference in the lives of students by developing their potential for premier leadership, personal growth and career success through agricultural education.

Each year, the students manage the greenhouse, growing and marketing plants, and vegetables. The funds they raise help send the members to Statewide and Nationwide conventions.

My daughter stopped by the greenhouse this morning, when I looked out onto the porch, she had left me a little treat.
It's good to share.

Those look so much better than what you can buy at Lowe's Or Home Depot. Lucky you!
And yes, please put the kettle on and we'll all have tea! (Hopefully, with some English biscuits!)

The quality of the blog in general is very convincing, which is why I would love to feature you and your writing on the Recommended Blog on Tennessee section on InterNations.org
Not only do we feature and link to your blog prominently; we also would like to hear from you directly in our questionnaire! We have also designed a link badge for your blog.

What beautiful plants! It makes them so special knowing your grandson helped grow them.

Beautiful! Just plain pretty geraniums. And your grandson is learning valuable tools for his adult life.

George said...

The FFA is a wonderful organization, and your grandson's group obviously have very green thumbs.

My favourite flowers - geraniums. I know what the others are too, but I can't remember the name of them?
Have fun choosing where to put them all
Good on your grandson for being so GREEN!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Wow--what a nice 'treat'... I love Geraniums --and they are the one flower which deer don't like...

Good for your grandson... I wish more young teens would take an interest in gardening/environmental things...


Patsy said...

They are lively colors that will brighten your day.
And I am sure your grandson does too.

I love the FFA. Our local high school does the same thing with the plant sale. I love it. The hanging baskets are always so healthy and I buy lots and lots of geraniums. Your daughter is a sweetie, she knows what her mother likes.

Terry said...

Very nice! FFA is a great organization.

Doc said...

Nothing more cheerful as big pots of geraniums in the sunshine

Almost better than candy! A summer of enjoyment will be had.

The FFA ( and FHA) is a wonderful program for young people. It develops character and helps them to gain a sense of confidence and responsibility. You have every right to be proud of your grandson!

Your geraniums are a lovely gift- and a perfect welcome to spring!
