There are sunflowers growing in our room! We planted the seeds last week- if I had taken pictures that week, it would have been pictures of dirt. Not so exciting. But this week all of this happened!
For years, I’ve wanted to grow sunflowers, but chipmunks always got to them. I would get so frustrated when I would come outside to find that they dug into the ground to steal the seeds. So I’m glad these are safe in our windowsill.
There’s something beautiful about watching these little seeds, which seem like almost nothing, turn into plants that keep getting bigger and bigger. I can’t wait until I have my own yard someday so that I can have a garden to tend to.
