Green things, peaceful things...

A few Sundays ago we talked about the third day of creation...God created trees and plants. These were 2 and 4 year olds--they weren't interested in the creation vs. evolution, new earth/old earth debates...we just enjoyed talking about what plants we love and what life would be like without them. For our craft that day we planted seeds...miniature sunflowers...and decorated the cup pots with plant stickers.

Somehow, all of my houseplants seem to be thriving this year...the African Violet, which I've had for years, goes through phases and right now is in a blooming one... the Green Leaf plant (no idea what it is but it has also been around for years) loves the window...and now our two little sunflowers are growing. All serve to remind us that, despite the snow blowing sideways out the window, spring will come, the sun will shine...

See...sunshine already...


Edited to add... Heart Leaf Philodendron...gosh, Google is a cool thing--all I did was type in "green leaf plant" and there ya go!
