Continuing an annual day-before-Mother’s-Day tradition, Edmonds in Bloom volunteers arrived bright and early at Saturday’s Edmonds Museum Garden Market with bags of soil, bright-colored buckets, loads of stickers and other decorations, and scores of flats brimming with colorful annuals. Participants came from throughout southern Snohomish County, including Lynnwood.

No sooner were they set up than throngs of kids and parents descended on the booth, all intent on making beautiful hand-made flower baskets to present to Mom on Mother’s Day.

The annual event helps raise money for the annual Edmonds in Bloom Garden tour, scholarships and other activities. This year’s Garden Tour is set for Sunday, July 16 between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. For more information, visit the Edmonds in Bloom website.
