Arkansas flowers grace Washington tree

Posted: Updated:

A little piece of Arkansas is spending the holiday season in Washington.

Arkansas wildflowers have been placed inside plastic ornaments and hang on one of the trees lining a walkway surrounding the National Christmas Tree. The other 49 states, the District of Columbia and a handful of territories also have ornaments hanging on the trees.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette reports that the ornament was the creation of fourth-grade students from the Northwest Environmental Studies Academy in El Dorado. The Arkansas Arts Council and the National Park Foundation asked the students to design and build an ornament to represent Arkansas at the display.

Each state chooses a different theme for its ornaments. Georgia's ornaments held tiny packets of peanuts, while Florida's had beach scenes painted on the globes.
