Why fake, you might ask? Because I’ve tried the real ones. And by tried I mean kept them alive for about a week and then…well, it was very sad because they were really pretty.
Here’s a picture of my then live flowers from back in September…
Ooo, and another one I just found…
(see how the ones in the back are starting to lean? it was the beginning of their demise)
After I lost two sets of the Gerbera daisies, I decided that was it for flowers in the classroom for me. I couldn’t bear it anymore (Gerbera’s are my favorite!).
Anyhow, now that it’s finally springy and sunshiny and all, I’ve been wanting some flowers for our classroom again. Don’t worry, I’ve learned my lesson and decided to play it safe…
…with fake flowers!
I love how full and bright they are! And they really make our doorway more welcoming.
Do you keep plants in your classroom? Real ones or fake?
I keep Atlantic salmon too, but I promise you they are safe in their tank. 🙂
