A couple of months ago, the little man and I planted some sunflower seeds as a springtime project. And with my brown thumb, I had every expectation that those little seeds we pushed into the compost would never see the light of day. Their little clay pots got stuffed inside our shed where they did at least have a bit of shelter and sun.
I’d all but forgotten about them and then one day stepped into the shed to break out the lawnmower and to my great surprise, those things had sprouted like wildfire. They quickly outgrew their tiny clay pots and we moved them into a big pot, one I felt sure they’d have plenty of breathing space in.
And they did. Until now. Now they are taller than my child and propped up with sticks trying desperately not to fall over. They beg for a new even bigger pot and maybe even a small tree branch to keep them upright. Now we’re just wondering if any flowers will ever materialize. If only it would stop raining and they could actually get, well, some sun. I assume sunflowers like that.
All this interestingness sprouted from just a few tiny seeds.
Makes you wonder what we’re all capable of growing if we just take the time to sow a few seeds.
