Love grows in the sand

Gwenny loves to pick flowers for me.  She gleefully presents them as little tokens of her love and I happily accept them as the beautiful gifts that they are!  But, recently, I've started explaining that flowers die when we pick them and I've gently suggested that we leave them attached to their "family" plant so they can thrive and help the bees do their job and, generally, make our world a more colorful and beautiful place.

She seems to understand this but still had a bit of trouble resisting the temptation to pluck a pretty daisy as we entered a new park in Palo Alto today.  I reminded her about how important it is that we leave the flowers in the ground so they can get nourishment and water and live a longer, more healthy, life.   Without missing a beat, she raced over to the playground and re-planted the flower!

That's my girl!
