lil Amie was over the other day and found a seed pod (from one of thos 'bean pod' trees--I don't know what the hell they're called) in the yard--must have been dropped last year after our trip to the safari park -- anyway, she wanted to plant the seeds . . . so we did, in a pot -- and that was so much fun :), we continued and planted some marigold seeds in another pot -- OH! we're so green :)
