When Moo was at play school, she excitedly bought home a plastic cup with a single seed in. This seed was this beautiful sunflower.
My heart sunk slightly when she ran through the door with it, as we actually don’t have a garden (yet.. one day we will!). We watered and nurtured it and it started growing and it started out growing the tiny little cup. We thought about planting it in the communal gardens that we use, but we were worried that the gardeners would get a bit carried away and trim it back thinking it was a weed of some kind. Moo loved watching it grow and we felt slightly disheartened at the fact we may have to get rid of this poor sunflower!
Thats when the lovely grandparents stepped in and gave us a spot in their garden, where it happily sits. Every other sunday when we go up for our sunday dinner we all skip down to the bottom of the garden to see how our sunflower is doing, and this Friday just gone, I was delighted, to see a huge flower on it! Moo jumped for joy and if this blog displayed the children I would of posted the picture of her bright shiny face as my “ordinary moments” photo. She was amazed at how the seed had produced the flower. She did ask where the other flower was (there was two seeds she planted) and as of yet it has not flowered, but I think any day now its going too.
This is most definitely an ordinary moment in our household, Moo loves seeing how well the sunflower is growing, its just a shame its not in our back garden! and I love to see her reaction each time we go. We talk about about tall its getting and we also get Moo to water it (when she wants too!).
