On a beautiful Thursday afternoon, our Walden residents enjoyed an interactive floral workshop with instructor, Jackie Kulach. Jackie led the lovely group of ladies to plant their bulbs, shared the history of Daffodils, and wonderful tips/tricks on how to tend for their new indoor plant. The group added their own personal touch by adding colourful ribbons, and accessories. Take a look below at a captured moment, and be surescroll to learn some fun facts about Daffodils!
