Cute idea

Did you ever hear the quote "Grandchildren are flowers in the garden of life"?  The son-in-law of one of our residents put that quote into action and made a grandchildren flower pot to hang outside her window.



He cut each of these flowers out of metal, attached them to a thin rod and added leaves.  He has one flower for each child, grandchild and even a few great-grandchildren.  Then each of them decorated their flower.  The paint is baked on so it's safe to be out in the weather.
 

Here's a close up of some of the flowers.
What a wonderful thing for her to see hanging outside her window!

Unique and special. I hope it cheers her. If nothing else, to get toward the end and have your son-in-law love you enough to do that, is remarkable.
