Lexi's Flower Planting.....

Yesterday was an absolutely GORGEOUS day in the mid 80's. Lexi and I had some errands to run and then we stopped by Lowes. She saw this children's grow kit and had to have it. Look at the concentration on her face.
She first had to put these little soil pellets into the pots and water them. She had to wait five minutes and then start pressing the seeds into each pot.
The seeds are two different types of Zinnia. She had to press about six seeds into each pot and water again.
Then she had to put the little greenhouse cover back on and place in a sunny spot. She is supposed to water each day and turn the greenhouse so the flowers grow straight. We will show you when she has beautiful flowers.
Hope you all are having a GREAT Wednesday!

How fun that looks for even an adult! I also bought some items for my patio to plant but last weekend it was rain rain and more rain. So this weekend it suppose to be beautiful and we are going to do a little of this also.

Can't wait to see how Lexi's flowers turn out.

How great you are encouragin' her to learn to grow things.
Lexi is soooo pretty. She looks like she has a sweet disposition too.

dana said...

I think Lexi is on to something that I could use--maybe that would be the only way I could get zinnias to grow! :) I'll have to watch the progress of those plants! Dana

Lexi is a darling girl and will make a great gardener. How nice you purchased this fun kit for her. You can tell she loves it. I love the fact that you are teaching her to garden. This is so important.
Happy days,

Ginger said...

I wish we had warm enough weather to plant. Well, we could plant today, but then it will freeze tomorrow. lol. Cute pictures of Lexi.

nikkicrumpet said...

So cool that she is getting a taste of how it feels to garden. It's a wonderful lesson for them to learn while they are young. I personally think it's better than therapy to dig around in the dirt! I can't wait to see her beautiful flowers!

Jules from "The Roost" said...

OH I can't wait to see them! I am so glad she has a love of gardening this early! =)

Daphine said...

This is great! Lexi is such a sweetie! I can't wait to see her beautiful flowers bloom!

Beth at Aunties said...

This is great! She is becoming quite the gardener and this gave me a wonderful idea for Easter gifts for our grandchildren. She truly is beautiful!

It will be fun to see Lexi's flowers!

Gretchen said...

Great job Lexi! Zinnia's are my favorite flower to plant by seed. Expecially Thumbelina Zinnias.

I actually used to show them at the County Fair with my 4-H Club.

Can't wait to see your flowers Lexi.

Gretchen

HeathahLee said...

Oh, she's going to have so much fun watching those grow!

Caren said...

She is so cute! I love Zinnias, I had great success planting them from seeds last summer. I hope Lexi does too.

Karen said...

SO cute! I remember doing that as a kid. I have tried them with the girls without much luck though.
