In September, celebrate the bright and happy sunflower. As summer slowly drifts into fall, this period of transition is the perfect time of year to appreciate the sunflower’s bright yellow petals. Join Mackenzie Knight-Fochs of The Scott Arboretum as she leads you in an exploration of this late summer stunner and create your own arrangement that celebrates the sunflower’s simple symmetry and striking features. Join us at the new Kennett Library & Resource Center for a fun evening of creativity.
