Seedlings Garden Fieldtrip

Brought Caleb plant shopping today.
We went to the Seedlings Garden to choose a plant that he could take care of.

We checked out the plants and flowers that were for sale.

Yes, he touched the water.


CALEB: That flower is so big!

It wasn’t a busy day for the plant vendors in the Seedling Garden so Caleb was allowed to prune the plants.

Water the plants…

He had so much fun doing this, he didn’t want to stop.
Future gardener?  Maybe he will have a green thumb.
I certainly don’t. All the plants I touch die within 48 hours. Hahaha!



Here Caleb tried to imitate the clay frogs with their mouths open.
CALEB: Look Mommy! I have a big mouth like frog.

Here he tried to touch the Koi that were being sold there as well.

We were finally able to find a plant that could be taken care of easily.
Caleb helped the plant vendor to move the plant into a pot for us to bring home.

He wanted to wash his hands after touching the wet soil.

He turned on the faucet all by himself.

His feet got muddy,  so he had to wash it as well.

While I was paying the plant vendor for the potted plant, Caleb made a friend.

I wondered what they were playing with…

It was a tiny leaf that they must have plucked out from one of the plants.

Well, I’m all for children creatively entertaining themselves 🙂
