Flower Growing Part 1: Planting Seeds

Gardens are so important for children. Its a place where they can play safely and securely on their own and where they get to discover Nature on their own terms.

Aurora takes great pleasure in watering the plants, pretending to mow the lawn, digging, chasing butterflies, watching bees and birds and joining in all garden activities. Last year she helped collect the seeds from some of our flowers. This year she has planted some of them. Lets see how many grow! Plant boxes are recycled from fruit juice bottles. M is for marigold. ? is for, erm – we don’t know!
