Week 3 – Planting bulbs in the garden with Daddy.
So….the weather did improve a little this week, so we got outside in the garden and planted some tulip bulbs with Daddy.
I was going to write about how Ellis really got his hands dirty, and got really stuck into the mud planting the bulbs, but he actually remained quite clean! For Christmas Ellis got a little gardening tool set so he could join in and help Daddy in the garden. He loves the fact that Daddy can have his tools, but Ellis can have his! He was more than happy to use them when filling up the pots with compost. I think his favourite bit was watering the bulbs at the end. Ellis is obsessed with water. He likes nothing more than tipping water from one container to the next. The only problem is getting him to stop!
We have positioned the pots outside the patio window so he can see them grow. I am not entirely sure he knows exactly why we planted the bulbs and what exactly is going to happen, but he seems to like pointing at the pots with a big smile on his face knowing that he did that. I am a little worried about when they do start to break through the soil as I can imagine him snapping them off!! Hopefully I’ll be able to post a photo when the flowers come up.
Please notice that Ellis is wearing a very stylish garden apron from his Great Grandma and Grandad for Christmas!
