During the bitterly cold period when our outdoor time was limited I decided to bring a little ‘Spring Time’ into our indoor environment. We started with a small planter and added rocks for drainage;
The soil was next – so smooth and soft compared to those rocks;
Grass seeds are prickly;
We pushed them down into the soil;
We added a little water and then I placed the planter on a shelf in the sunroom – out of reach of the cats.
And then we forgot about it.
Seriously! The weather warmed up and we spent many hours outdoors playing in the snow. We got busy and completely forgot about this activity until one day when my husband asked “What are you planning to do with that grass?”
I quickly brought the planter down so the children could see and feel;
Even when we forgot to watch Mother Nature was busy doing her job 🙂
