They are. Daffodils are Julian. And all because of a local hero, Sally Snipes. Mati wrote this wonderful introduction on the Julian Elementary Garden Instagram page:
As part of her school garden lessons honoring Sally, Mati drew this up for demonstration and coloring:
I know, I know. Amazing. (Mural on campus, perhaps?) Mati created many lessons around our treasured daffodil season. The first activity was for students to spread out in the garden and sketch and color the flowers for a pennant.
Look at these flags and these sweet faces!
Then she got students working on real sewing machines…in the garden.
And finally, the flags were assembled to hang at Town Hall for last weekend’s daffodil show! (More on that in the next post…stay tuned.)
My favorite time of the year in Julian. Love the daffodils! Love you, mom
Love you too! Fun to share our history with daffodils!
What a wonderful story. I wish I lived closer to Julian so I could see this first hand. We now live in Berkeley and have been away from the schools gardens of San Francisco for some time. Thanks for all the good work you all are doing.
Nan! So good to see your name pop up, as one of my early inspirations for the work we continue to do! You have a standing invitation to visit if you ever head down this way.
