Pete and Sam planted the flowers from their Christmas stockings in the flower box, which led to a colorful display throughout the summer:
Unfortunately, Mom could not see the flowers from the kitchen because the window is a little too high. (This is the diplomatic way of stating it). But at least now she can see what they looked like on this web page. Next year the boys will need to find some taller varieties to plat, so Mom can see the tops of them.
Also, their sunflowers grew nicely in Dad's pumpkin garden (better than Dad's pumpkins).
