The girls were talking about flowers, and so we spent a day buying and planting flowers and seeds. I especially looked for flowers that would go from seed to bloom in a short time. We used: Nasturtiums, Marigolds, Zinnias, and forget me nots.
We also made a big pot look like miniature garden. It seemed timely with easter, and I really wanted to make a tomb and stone so it could be a resurrection garden (like this, this, this, or this), but we never quite got there. Still we planted it with succulents and flowers, then made a path of moss and set a rock in the middle. The girls talked about what they might do in the garden if they were small enough to walk in it: pray, think think think, smell the flowers.
No blooms yet, but we're keeping an eye on them.
