Seeds and weeds and flowers and such.

I wanted Brooklyn to witness a plant grow.
So we planted some seeds.
Cucumbers first.
And then they all died...
So, we tried again about a week ago with beans,
in more breathable containers:

My bean
 HA! Such a goof!!

A week later, 
and VOILA!
The beans sprouts are turning into 
Jack's beanstalks, so tall!!! 
We've also got tomatoes on the side 
and cucumbers, again, in another container.
It's so lovely and neat to see such life grow!

On a similar note.
Related to planting a seed
and letting it grow...
My baby boy turned 13 months old
2 weeks ago....

It never ceases to amaze me
how fast these babies grow.

I love my little weeds.
Even though I consider them
flowers in bloom.....


  1. ha ha! I know, eh!! He kept jumping and jumping trying to get in the picture and REALLY annoying me!! And when I actually got a good shot of him, warned him that he 'may' become famous!! LOL

  2. hahaha I love the bean stalk(er)! I wish I could keep anything alive in this suite of mine, but I just don't think we get enough light. Maybe I'll try again though - you've inspired me!

  3. oh my gosh, Jaime...I'm 'THE' plant killer only motivation in starting was my daughter and then my only saviour after the (whole) first batch died was my husband, the bean-stalker!! LOL! Funny how things work out! ha ha ha! ;)

  4. The little "flowers in bloom" are adorable, especially Brooklyn's smile!

  5. Awe, thanks Irina!! They've both got perfect smiles!! Even though I'm a bit biased... :)

  6. "bean stalk-er"...too funny. Your plants are doing so well in the window. Your other "little weeds" are adorable!
