At the beginning of Spring, I found myself in the supermarket, with tantrums looming - if I didn't let Oscar and Nora buy some seeds. So I let them choose a packet (or two) each. They planted the seeds in the unused narrow side garden bed, in front of the rather drab colourbond fence. Throughout Spring, Osc would run outside and count the leaves, as his sunflowers grew ever stronger. Nora would pretend her cosmos and zinnias were weeds, so sadly, they haven't amounted to much. But the sunflowers, they are so joyous! Oscar, you chose well.
