Wordless Wednesday

A little taste of spring...

Okay, I can't resist a few words... ☺

A couple of weeks ago in Sunday School, my three-year-old daughter planted grass seeds in this little cup. She added a flower made out of a Popsicle stick and a mini cupcake liner, and then made the sun that's hanging in the background out of a clear plastic plate. About a week ago, the grass started to grow, and now, even though there's still snow outside, I feel like I have my own little bit of spring right here in my kitchen.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday. ☺

  5. A little green is such an encouraging thing this time of year!
    We're getting lots of sunshine in northern MN, and our snow piles have been settling & sinking.. but it'll be a while until we see blades of grass. I might have to start some seeds in our windows, too!

  17. That is so sweet! I love that she planted grass, and added the very "spring-ish" flower. And it's all made downright awesome by your celebrating it with a photo and this post!

  19. That's a nice taste of spring. We have a few weak looking blossoms in our front yard. Every year when it starts to get a little bit warm, they pop up. Then, the cold snaps back and the flowers wilt.

    1. The same thing happens to the few bits of green we have in our yard. That's why I'm loving having this little bit of green in the kitchen. As long as I remember to water it, it should be fine. :)

      Thanks for stopping by. Happy WW. ☺

  21. Hi Dana, Thanks for visiting and commenting on my ww clouds in New Zealand post at www.travelgenee.com blog. I do appreciate this kindness.

    I loved the grass growing - it is nice to appreciate the simple things that children can bring to our attention.

    1. I think it's important to see things through a child's eyes. They do look at the world differently. :)

      Happy Thursday.
