|Dill in flower|
All summer we had been pulling off the dill flowers. Pooka asked if they were so pretty why we had to pull them off. I told her it would keep the plant healthy longer. We talked a bit more about it and it led to a discussion of the life cycle. Pooka's explanation is this: "They drop their seeds, have a little sprout that grows, and it makes more seeds and it does it over and over again. It's called a life cycle." While she is close, we are going to have to work on a few concepts but not bad for being 4.
Here is a picture Pooka asked I post. She was trying to take a picture of her strawberry plant from inside. It may be a bit off but it matches the rest of us around here. In her defense, I think she saw something shiny after she hit the button.
