What to muse about today?

Garden Girl

After daycare today, Teagan and I planted sunflowers.  I had prepared the bed on the side of the house today during my gardening therapy.  At first she was very excited about it. But when the seeds didn’t become flowers right before her eyes, she got bored.

She did have fun with the gloves and the trowel for a little bit.

Eventually, we got all the seeds in the dirt, covered and patted in.  She really wanted to play in the water, but alas, we had to water the seeds in.

I know it’s late in the season to start sunflowers, but they should still come up, and bloom, albeit a bit late.  She doesn’t know they’ll be late, she’ll just be happy when the bloom.  Hopefully she won’t be bored with them by then.

Hopefully, they’ll still bloom.


Digging holes

Now what, Mama?

What’s this?

Making holes

Can I play with the sharp gardening tool?

    Of course she would want to see the flowers…NOW…:-) Hopefully, she’ll return to that excited moment when she does she the results of “her” hard work. How long do the sunflowers take to come up and give those huge blooms???

      Of course she does! I really can’t blame her. There should be seedlings in 7-14 days, maybe on the long side as she buried them a bit deep. Then there should be flowers in about 50 days or so.
