I went to the garden centre today, to pick up some more seeds and strawberries, which after yesterday’s blinding moment of realisation, hopefully will allow me to grow more. While I was there, I remembered AJ saying that we hadn’t grown any Cosmos this year. At the time I put this is my memory buffer, but as I stood before all those colourful seed packets, I suddenly remembered what she said.
For the last two years, the children have grown their own flowers to give to their teachers and carers at the end of the summer term. I’m a great believer in the children putting something into these presents, rather than me just going out and buying a gift. Whether the teachers would rather have a box of chocolates or something bought, I will probably never know!
We usually sow the seeds during the Easter holidays, which I have missed now, so I was mighty relieved to find a packet of Cosmos seeds which claim to flower in 10 weeks and Swan River Daisies that are meant to be ready in 6 weeks. I have thought of a slightly different twist this year.
So we planted.
Grow little seeds, grow.
