Little fingers digging in fresh soil.
Seeds tucked in to dark tiny holes.
Watering cans and goodnight wishes.
Quick morning checks and quiet encouragements: "grow plant, grow!".
Cheers and smiles at the first sign of green.
More watering cans and "good for you!" as the little plants start to grow.
And when 'Sunny' the sunflower and 'Cab' the cabbage grow bigger and stronger,
So does the child.
