Flowers

"It's got a stinky smell Mum". Need to educate him on the difference between stinky smell and perfume.

“It’s got a stinky smell Mum”. Need to educate him on the difference between stinky smell and perfume.

A couple of weeks ago friends came for lunch and they brought some chrysanthemums over for me (well I’m presuming they were for me and not Martin 😉 ) which were hastily shoved in a vase of water. Fast forward a week and the water is seriously manky. When I said I was going to clean them up Jasper expressed a desire to help.

Firstly we pulled them out of the vase and cut off a large part of the crusty stalks. Jas then took the yellow ones and I the white and we both stripped off the leaves before popping them back into smaller vases.

  1. Such a sweet boy! I love to see them taking an interest in plants and other natural things at an early age. A pint-sized permie, indeed! (nice flowers, too) 🙂

    • He was so intent on doing it properly too. He LOVES hands on learning which challenges me greatly as I’ve always been such a book learner (although these days those books are more like webpages but hey) so I often don’t think to ask him to come and help me do something. When I do though, he just comes alive.
