Number 13 - What's Inside Today?

Children love to watch things grow.  Fascinated in the changes they have made happen when a seed they have planted grows it's first shoot, each day growing a little taller and slowly blossoming into something beautiful. This time of year is perfect for planting Hyacinth bulbs and when placed in Hyacinth vases like these here, you can watch their roots grow and the bulb open up to reveal first it's leaves until one day it's beautifully scented flower appears. As though by magic this flower grown from in inconspicuous brown nut like ball.

These beautifully illustrated notebook covers are perfect for creating books for the little budding gardener, the explorer, the blossoming botanist. They can fill the pages with notes and drawings of the discoveries around them.
You can create a little garden space for them, it needn't be big, even an egg carton with cress seeds is wonderful to watch grow.
I'm planning on taking these books on winter walks and as we walk the same path every day we can note down the changes we spy as Winter turns to Spring.

What a perfect gift for curious minds.

  1. Hi! I was hoping to print your lovely garden journal, but it isn't available. May you send it to me?
    I would cherish it!
