With Mother’s Day on the horizon, Edmonds in Bloom volunteers were on hand at the Museum Garden Market Saturday to help kids build special flower arrangements to present on the big day. The annual event helps raise funds for Edmonds in Bloom, and Saturday’s sunny skies and warm weather brought out scores of kids eager to build the perfect gift for Mom.
