Girl Scouts For Girls Blog Gets the Exclusive on Mississippi's Flower Friends

The Girl Scouts For Girls Blog reports that each year, Daisies from New Horizons Church in Jackson, Mississippi, celebrate Daisy Day by taking a trip to the local zoo. This they wore straw hats decorated with flowers representing their favorite Flower Friends.

Each Flower Friend stands for a different line of the Girl Scout Law. Gloria, the morning glory, stands for “respect myself and others.” Lupe, the lupine, represents “honest and fair.” Tula, the tulip, is “courageous and strong.” The girls from Jackson said that Rosie, the Rose, is a favorite because she “makes the world a better place,” just like they do!

Before the trip, each girl selected the flower she likes best from her Welcome to the Daisy Flower Garden Journey and decorated her straw hat.

In the Daisy Flower Garden, gardening meets the Girl Scout Law. The result is a storybook world of flowers and little girls who, together, do great things. The adult "how-to" guide offers Garden Story Time tips, key ideas for garden projects, and all the Girl Scout history and traditions needed for an adventure starring Amazing Daisy, a new flower friend for Girl Scout Daisies.
