… if your child is “helping” to plant it?  ;-)

Suuuuch a beautiful weekend it was, and I got to go outside and enjoy the sunshine and dig in the dirt with Emma.   I decided it was the perfect time to plant some wildflower seeds I bought from the Target dollar section – just for fun.  I’m not experienced when it comes to gardening at all but I would like to have some pretty flowering things around this summer.  First we found some dirt and filled my pretty container…

Then I let Emma fill her new watering turtle can with water and water the flowers…

And this is when I completely gave up trying to grow something and let her play with the mud.

She enjoyed it SO much, and was so serious about it!  I’m never that serious, I don’t know where she gets it…  Okay maybe I’m a little intense about some stuff.  :)  But I’m learning to lighten up.  lol

After she was done playing I added some dry dirt again in the hopes that something might still come of the wildflower seed we planted.  Do you think it will?

  • Fun! Did you make sure to put holes in your container for proper drainage?

    • Hm, no! lol I think I need a Container Gardening for Dummies book. :) I don’t have any of the right type of pots, I’ll have to look into that… Dollar Store here I come!
