Today we met at the 9News station and put together some plant arrangements. Later we took them over to Swedish Hospital and handed them out to some of the nurse’s stations and to some of the patients.
We used poinsettias, cyclamen, fir trees, and Christmas cactus in baskets, little buckets, and decorative containers. We decorated them with moss, pinecones, ornaments and bows.
Poinsettias and cyclamen need humidity and a cool place to hang out that has some direct light. They don’t like a lot of heat so don’t put them by a furnace vent or in a hot window. Cool doesn’t mean outdoors either. Outdoor cold air will kill any of these plants. Christmas cactus are a cactus so they can take more heat. These fir trees are indoor trees so please don’t put them outside.
After we made up the arrangements for Rob’s segment Rob and I took them over to Swedish Hospital and Rob handed them out at some of the nurse’s stations and to a few of the patients. Lots of fun and we made some people smile.
So far, so fun!!
