Happiness is: the gift of plants

This little basket helped get me through the weekend. A gift from my Nana for the girls. Isn’t it just lovely?

Lily was especially fascinated by the strawberry plant. “When it grows and gets red, can we eat it?”

I kept the basket on the kitchen island so we could see it every day. When the plants drooped, Lily loved watering them.

It was the perfect little ray of sunshine.

Yesterday, after getting everyone down for nap, I snuck outside to dig in the dirt. I added the flowers to a little garden that Lily and I started by the mailbox.

They’re perfect. And they make me smile.
