The Tempest

Studying Shakespeare at any age, but especially from a young age, is transformative for the mind and soul. William Shakespeare’s works may be close to 400 years old, but the lessons and themes in his plays are timeless. Studies have proven that children that study Shakespeare have a deeper understanding of all literature they study, have greater empathy and are more appreciative of history and its impact on literature and society. Additionally, studying Shakespeare helps heighten creative play and imagination.

Superbells Prism Pink Lemonade: A Calibrachoa with rare coloration

There is a new Superbells calibrachoa making its debut in 2023 that is so beautiful and unusual, I’ve even wondered if Proven Winners knows what they have. Had calibrachoas been around in 1800 as Empress Josephine was constructing the gardens at Le Château de Malmaison, Superbells Prism Pink Lemonade would have been her first choice.
