We planted some seeds two weeks ago and they’re already up and looking well.

Sunflowers

Sunflowers. Mammoths! They can grow to be 12 feet high!

Petunias

Petunias. They look so delicate now!

We’ve all been watching them closely – even Jack, who dumped all the seeds we tried to start indoors last year many, many times. Julia has been playing them music. Lucy talks to them. She also made a book about them.

In a week or two, they will grow into a flower.
