☆♡ Thank You ♡☆

Artist: Mike Johnston

There are only 2 roses in this mini-mural by Mike Johnston, but I took a bouquet of pics.

Artist: Mike Johnston

I wanted to link each pic to a Kids’ Month contributor, but that’s a lot of links in 1 post.

Artist: Mike Johnston

So, I’ve decided to thank all contributors to Kids’ Month in separate, special posts.

Artist: Mike Johnston

It could take a couple of months to find all the appropriate art, but I know I will!

Artist: Mike Johnston

Thank you, all! This post is for you!

It’s colorful, and combines an aboriginal arts feel with 20th century cartoons.

KIDS’ MONTH 2016

Water

Fresh water is one of the most important things in life.

Benji & Ms. Zulu remind us in my last post, that all plants & animals need plenty of fresh water to live and grow.

SO, how can we keep it clean? Can we pollute less? How will life grow if it drinks poison?

There is one other side to this mini-mural. Looks to me like kids are sharing.

Here’s older kids, still sharing.

Benji & Ms. Zulu Host “A Vegetable Garden”

“Hi this is Benji and Ms. Zulu. We were asked by Resa to host the vegetable garden mural for Kid’s Month.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“This is quite an honor and we are happy to assist. Of course we are hoping to get a tasty snack for our modeling work.”

“As you can see, I used to be very small.”

“Humans are omnivores and need to eat lots of veggies and fruit.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“Dogs are canines and we love veggies and fruit, just be sure not to feed us the wrong kinds, see  Vegetables & Fruits Dogs Can & Can’t Eat”

“After eating lots of healthy dog food, I got as strong as a lion.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“Ms. Zulu is already 11.5 years old and has helped put in many vegetable gardens.”

She taught me that you need to dig a whole lot if you want to plant vegetables and fruit trees in your garden.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“I like to help her with it. It’s hard work but we don’t mind because the fruit of this kind of labor is sweet.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“I love to sniff the plants and trees in the garden; they all have a different scent. I often see bees, butterflies, and even hummingbirds on the flowers.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“I recently learned that these are important pollinators. Without them we would not be able to grow most fruit and vegetables.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“Pesticides kill pollinators and are bad for us too; that’s why we don’t use pesticides in our backyard. Better be safe than sorry.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“Here we are in front of a banana tree, showing the fruit as well as carrots. There are lots of vitamins in the bananas and carrots. The good news is that these are so tasty that we enjoy eating healthy in between meals.”

“So let’s dig and plant some fruits and veggies!”

 ⭐ THANK YOU Benji & Ms. Zulu

The garden is so happy that you came to host, that the Onion, Potato and Robin have formed a band and are writing a song for you.

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

The onion is the percussionist, and the potato plays guitar.

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

Of course the Robin is the singer!

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“Of course, the garden needs water, just like you and me.”

Artist: Caitlin Taguibao

“Ms. Zulu and I love to help with this task and always want first dibs. The water from the hose is sooo refreshing, it’s hard to resist.”

Giraffe by Birdo

I found this Giraffe on Sunday. It was the Birdo I needed for Kids’ Month.

Artist: Birdo

The entire mural feels like world of fun & toys.

Artist: Birdo

I imagine this is a magic sock filled with creative ideas and projects.

Artist: Birdo

The best is that it’s in a crevice in an alley where kids live and garbage is kept. This mini-mural works so well, the trash bins go almost unnoticed.

Artist: Birdo

No one brightens cement city like Birdo!
