Am I the only one who is SO ready for spring? I decided today to do a little early planting with Charlie and Maddie and enjoy checking out the fruits of our labor for the remainder of this dreary winter.
All we did was take a glass container (I bought this one at Pottery Barn years ago and use it year-round for different decorations), fill it with glass beads, stick some calla lily bulbs down into the beads, and add a little water. This would be really cute in mason jars or any type of glass vase or pitcher.
Charlie was being silly for the camera so I had to include some pics of his hilarious self.
This was really fun to do with the kids and I know they’ll be so excited when the flowers start growing. We’re definitely going to have to talk about planting seeds in people by talking about Jesus (Matt 28:19) and also how seeds grow into big, beautiful things (Matt 13: 30-32). Springtime is such a wonderful opportunity to teach about God’s love for us and how his love is expressed in nature.
I’ll post some pics of our flowers when they bloom!
