our little gardener



layla couldn't wait for a trip to home depot a few weeks ago.  
she had been begging us to take her to pick out some seeds.  
she heard me talking to her daddy about planting flowers and couldn't wait to do her part!




she picked out seeds and planted them.  she didn't really know what she planted in her little pots.  she didn't care.  she just wants to nurture something.  she is excited to get up and water her dirt every morning.


the three pots on the table are hers.  she moves them all around the yard!



sunday morning she actually finally saw some green buds poking through the freshly watered soil.  
she was so happy!  she came running to the door to call me outside to take a look.


i like her interest in gardening.  i also like that while she is watering 'her' crops she waters mine too :o)

What a great little helper! I am so bad about remembering to water stuff! I bought some seed kits at Lowes for the boys a few weeks ago and we still haven't planted them!

That is so sweet Angie. You might consider taking pictures of the plants each day for her and labeling them so that she can observe the differences. Oops, there I am with my teacher hat on again....sorry....lol

How sweet. My girls love to garden too. It is a great project for the summer.

Becky said...

That is so sweet, I like to watch stuff grow too...unfortunately I have a BLACK thumb! I got one of those topsy turvey tomato plants, I really need to see how that works!

Rhiannon planted some flowers in my big pots too and just loves taking care of them. I got her and Layla some small pots too so they could put seeds in them but Im a slacker and havent got any seeds yet...bad mama!

Heather said...

It looks like Layla is a great helper girl!! I love that she is sporting her shades while watering the plants! :) You realize she is going to be a heartbreaker one day! :)

So cute! Emily wants to plant flower seeds too, but I haven't gotten around to it. We are behind in planting this year...the weather has not been very nice! She is so sweet! Can't wait to see her 'crops' blossom!

Laura said...

That is so cute! And GOOD for her!
I know Im always happy when my plants grow too!

And Im envious of your weather! It looks warm out!
We SHOULD be having Spring but its been more like Winter!

That is SO cute... and such a good idea for the kiddos - something for them to take care of and nurture!! Sweet... I love these pictures and her cutie-pah-tootie sun glasses!!

And I have been terrible for keeping up on twitter - but did the doctor say anything about the little misters rash? Any idea what it is?

Thinking of you guys!
