Out and about...



We attended a junior horticulturalist event recently at our
local botanical gardens.  The boys learned all about 
seeds and planted their own sunflowers and beans...

(How clever is that biodegradable "pot", really???)



(Luke LOVES "cuttin' stuff" these days.)



And, I know I already shared this one over the weekend, 
but I couldn't help but post it again.  He's so funny...





It's still super hot in GA, but today it was really windy, too, 
and Sam's little pinwheel was spinning like crazy!






Linking up with:
ShutterLoveTuesdaysSweet Shot Day

I love the spinning pinwheel!! cute! =) we have sun and wind ... but it ain't "hot"... lol!! =) last year we made biodegradable planting pots out of brown paper bags... they molded... gotta love colder wet country! *sigh* I think it would have been a differnt story with warmer weather!~ Can't wait to see the boys sunflowers!

I love the use of the toilet rolls. I always recycle mine and you can also make ornaments from them.

What a great idea to use tubes from toilet paper rolls as pots! :)

How fun! And what a creative idea for pots. I'll have to show my senior mom for starting next year's gardening project! And won't you and your kids enjoy it as you grow those sunflower seeds! We're on our second year of growing sunflower houses so we've got plenty of sunflowers here as well and it's so cool to watch them grow - especially the giant Mammoth sunflower seeds that are so easy to grow and get so tall! I'm looking forward to seeing how yours turn out - be sure to use your great digital camera to grab photos of them in a few months :). Have a lovely Sweet Shot Tuesday!

Beautiful and fun shots!

Nicolle said...

Those planters are so clever. I love that idea!

Love the pictures of the boys. :) Boyd hasn't quite mastered scissors yet. I guess we need more practice, with the kid proof ones.

Cedar said...

Lots of sweet shots! Love his expression with the magnifying glass and what a cool pinwheel! My boys love cutting things, also. Leaves little trails of tiny bits of paper everywhere.

And So I Whisper said...

Kids love these activities so much!! Great shots.
