Easter Garden of Grace

Greatly inspired by one of the latest posts on my daughter Jessica's blog, sunnystitching, I got supplies needed to make an Easter Garden of Grace with my grandchildren Henry and Corey.   (She has some other very nice Easter crafts on her blog also....take a look)

This wonderful idea was inspired by A Holy Experience.  Ann shares the supply list and most important, ideas of sharing each night when lighting the candles.

Here are photos of the Garden of Grace that me, Henry and Corey created:

 Supplies we used:   Rocks from our front yard, candle holder for water, tea lights and basket lined with a garbage bag.
 Henry is showing you the potting mix we used to fill the basket.
 The beautiful plants we purchased at our local nursery, Shore Gardens.
 Corey and I had a wonderful time creating the beautiful garden
 Henry enjoyed this beautiful Easter project also.
Closeup of the garden.....
Henry chose the to write Joy and Corey chose to write  Grace on their rocks.....beautiful combination.

Such a beautiful project to turn my thoughts to the meaning of Easter..............
