We have enjoyed making daffodils for the home, partly because it is such a lovely happy symbol of spring and secondly because it was St David's Day on the 1st March. It was also St Patrick's Day this month and we put up some lovely things relating to Ireland.
Some of the inspiration for the daffodils came from our flower troughs which are now blossoming beautifully. We started thinking about our gardening projects for this year, and already have planted seeds, some vegetables for the greenhouse and vegetable plot, flower seeds to enjoy this year and some which might not mature until next year. We are looking forward to see how they perform. We had a lovely musical afternoon, having an initial sing along, then choosing to listen to different types of folk music. This was partly because we had St David's and St Patrick's Day this month but also a resident staying with us on respite, had brought his tin whistle to play and everyone enjoyed the music.
There has been some good reading in story telling this month, with residents who have been reading getting into the atmosphere of the story, so very enjoyable for residents. In Poetry our witty poems from Pam Ayers made us giggle. For Mother's Day the residents created very effective paper posies to brighten everyone's rooms and to display around the home.
