Friday's Nature Table...

It starts with a 10 cent packet of seeds.
Ten cents, and an old broken pot.
The hope of creating life.
Just add some dirt....
Some mulch...
A small handful of seeds...
Carry the pot to a special place...
Add water...
And wait.

The waiting is the hardest part.
My babies will surely lose interest in this little project long before the seeds will sprout.
Sometimes its not even about the results.
Sometimes its not what it will be, it just is what it is.
Working together.
The promise of something beautiful.

Thank you to The Magic Onions for bringing us together every Friday!

And what joy your children will get when after maybe forgetting what is planted in that pot, will discover the flowering plants sometime later. Happy gardening!
