How They Grow

We put a lot of effort into our garden here on the homestead. The seeds are planted and sprouting. The daffodils have bloomed in the sunshine and the clematis is climbing. There are pots of pansies on the front porch for a little dash of color.

But we have other things that grow around here. We tend them carefully, feed and water them. We talk lovingly to them. And they just grow and grow.

Some have long legs...

Others have broad shoulders...

And one is a beautiful flower.


I'm so glad to be their gardener.

  1. How true! Our most precious plants are our children. They need the most nurture and care. Isn't it nice that they are able to respond back to us!

  2. That is very true. Sometimes it's easy to just get caught up in the everyday and lose sight of what a very important thing it is we're really doing.

  3. Aww... what a beautiful post. I could not help but smile ear to ear at your delightful words and gorgeous children!
    They are all so wonderful!

  4. Awwww....that's so sweet. And they are adorable!

  5. Great pictures! And do you want to do some landscaping at my house?

  6. Such lovely spring flowers!
