My daughter and I decided to do a little seed project with our grandson. We went to the local hardware store and bought several packets of seed, some flowers, basil, and pumpkins. She thought it would be fun for them to make a huge mess and paint some small flower pots so he could share his plants with his preschool teacher and maybe his mom.
Wow maybe we have a budding artist, definitely modern art.
We found these neat little peat pots to put the seeds in.
Wow! look what they have done in just one week.
Fascinating to a two year old. He has a hard time realizing that little shoot could grow his Halloween pumpkin.
My mother is in a skilled nursing facility about 30 miles away. It is a beautiful ride through farm land. My husband has been watching a nest way up in a tree. One day there were two white heads in the nest. We think this is an eagle's nest. Unfortunately the day we saw the eagles we didn't have a camera. This is the nest. It is huge and way up in a tree. The river runs approximately parallel to the road and we read that eagles like to be near water.
There are so many amazing things around us if we just take a little time and look.
