A spot of gardening

My kids love being in the garden and love nothing more than planting seeds and watching them grow. Earlier in the year we bought a packet of sunflower seeds from our local garden centre and as a family, we have really enjoyed planting them and watching them grow. It’s hard to believe that from one tiny seed , such an enormous flower can grow. Today was the day to take them down but not without one last ‘slow’ task to carry out.  We needed to collect the seeds. So off sprinted my daughter to get some kitchen tongs (her idea) and off went my son to find the tweezers from the toy medical set for that most important job of all, harvesting the seeds. No joke, they sat without moving for over 20 minutes patiently plucking out seeds from their sunflower heads and placing them in a bucket ready for using next year .Bless em. The circle of life xx
