Flourish is by the same creators as the very popular Everdell game. Flourish is for 1 to 7 players and lasts 20-60 min. In the game you build an award winning garden My husband and I have always played it at 2 players. With my daughter home from college, we had the pleasure of playing with 3. We find this as a light, enjoyable, quick playing game with beautiful artwork.

it was a close game with scores of 50, 56, and 62. My husband came in the winner with his focus on end game scoring. Even with a loss, my daughter enjoyed the game, finding it was easy to learn and it didn’t take up too much of her precious Sunday. I just had fun playing and making my rose garden.

A family favorite dessert this time of year is Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp. Since it uses fruit and oatmeal, that means it can also double as breakfast, right? This version comes together quickly with frozen fruit, an easy substitute when fresh is unavailable. Severe it warm with some good vanilla ice cream for an extra treat.
