While shopping at Target one day, we found these super cute tins of Cosmos flowers. They were in the dollar bins up near the front. FLOWERS!! I just LOVE planting flowers!! And I figured that Elizabeth would enjoy doing this, too, so that she could closely watch them as they grow.
Yesterday afternoon, we soaked the soil that came in the tins (you know, the kind that is super compacted together and you soak it in water so it'll become soft), placed it back in the little tins and tucked the tiny seeds inside. Now we begin the long wait for the sprouts to appear.
Elizabeth had quite a time playing in the dirt. She carefully placed each little seed in the soil and covered it with a little more dirt. It was incredibly sweet watching her be so gentle.
After they are 3 inches tall (according to the directions), we can take them outside and plant them!! Even more fun!!!
Hmmmm... I wonder who is more excited here- me or Elizabeth? HA!!!
