how will our garden grow?

Pin It


we have a large brick planter in front of our house.  Bear and i decided to pLaNT sOMe fLoWeRS in it.  so we gathered our tools and set to work.  here are a few things i learned about gardening while we were working. 
he said: being around all those bricks can be dangerous. 
i learned: sometimes you can't be too cautious

he said: you sprinkle them all around the dirt
i learned: sometimes Momma's way is more effective

he said: you gotta use the golf club to club the dirt on top
i learned: sometimes Bear's way is more creative

the seeds sat in the dirt for a week.
and then it rained, and the lessons began again.
he said: Thank you God
i learned: sometimes the little things have the biggest effect

This is such a beautiful post, Andie! I was smiling the entire time (and I admit to getting a little teary eyed). This is so sweet. Thank you for sharing.

Lovely post, it is so great to have a record of the things our kids say. Time goes so fast and so many little things can get forgotten.

We too just planted flowers over the weekend. I love that something like this can teach us how important those little moments are to a child!
