Meet Amie

This is Amie.  She loves to play in the garden.
I always make friends with plants and animals.  The air we breathe is because of the plants and trees, and the animals teach us how to be good humans!  I see life as all interconnected.  When plants and animals suffer, I suffer, too.  And when people are sad, it’s like I feel it also, deep down inside.
Amie and my other friends teach me how to care for our planet. They say there is nothing more important than taking care of each other and our Earth.

Fun With Friends

I like playing with my friends a lot, but I also miss the ones I’ve left behind.   “This year is going to be our year,” my mom says at the start of every year.  I like that she is so positive.
 
Here in Chicago, I’ve made some great friends – there’s ..Teresa (Red Flower), Kinu (Brown Monkey) & Dante the beaver (sitting in Kinu’s lap)….they’re really fun.  I like going on adventure hunts with them!

Manita Linda & The Garden

This is a special day. My friends, Teresa (red flower), Dante (Beaver) & Amie (Yellow/orange flower) joined me on my trip to the Garden.  Today, my friends and I met a group of Lilies!  Lilies grow all around Illinois.  Every year, many American lilies meet up in Iowa at the North American Lily Society.  They have a ball!  I can just imagine them – Lilies from all around, some from other parts of the world – getting together, dancing and laughing in a symphony of colors!  The Lilies told us they come in all sorts of colors, such as pink, yellow, shades of red, orange, white, and some are  two-colored!  Can’t you just see the rainbow ball!  The Lilies told us that we visited them at the right time because they’re in full bloom in the summer! (Although it was a hot day, we kept cool because a gentle giant Maple tree gave us wonderful shade!)

What are your favorite flowers? In what beautiful and vibrant colors do they bloom?
