How about the flowers left over from church. Even if you do not work
in a parochial school some of the kids involved in church could
probably bring any left overs. I also came back from the zoo with my
youngest son (it was his first field trip). I thought there are some
animals (reptiles too) which hardly move! Great still lives-some of
the vegetation, trees, bushes and workers don't move much either!
