This past Saturday we took our Girl Scout Daisies to the Botanical Gardens to earn their “Make The World A Better Place” petal. We set it up so that we could plant flowers and take a nature walk. Even though it was extremely humid the girls did fantastic and had a blast. They each planted two or three flowers and I was able to find an earth worm or two and a millipede to show them.

This looks like a good spot! The girls planted in the Memorial garden and the Fairy Garden. We told the girls that the fairies were statues by day and with a little magic moon dust came to life at night, they thought that was the coolest.
They did their Girl Scout Promise and a Growing Daisy song. They got to smell different scents in the Herb Garden, the misters were on in the Rainforest Garden which made it a lot of fun, the girls loved the pebble path in the Dessert Garden and thought the Secret Garden was cool because.. well… it’s secret and there was a kid sized fairy statue in it.
The girls left knowing that they had earned their petal, making the world a better place, by planting flowers and learning a little bit about nature. The day ended with them eating lunch at a stone table and talking about the fairies and their favorite garden at The Botanical Gardens.
