Last night, I taught my six-year-old niece, Lauren, how to make plant pots out of newspaper. She thought it was the greatest thing – she made a tray full of pots and I filled them with dirt. Then we sprinkled seeds in each pot. Well, I am hoping that some seeds reached all of the pots! There was a great deal of enthusiasm but not a lot of precision, so the results will be interesting.
The sheer joy of playing in the dirt, for child and adult, was brought home to me yet again. And now I am off on my Sunday morning tour of the Green Thumb Sunday blogroll. (For a list of Green Thumb Sunday blogs, please scroll down my blog.)
