Spring Planting

The weather has been rather nice in sunny Cincinnati. At times like these, our thoughts turn to spring. My son's thoughts were definitely on spring. I found him in front of our house with a garden shovel and a packet of Forget-Me-Nots. He was busy digging holes.

"What are you doing?" I asked.

"Planting flowers," he answered. "I like gardening."

"Me too," I said.

I watched him carefully put the seeds in the holes he had dug. Then he covered them with dirt and patted them lovingly with his shovel.

"When they come up, they will be your Valentine's Day present," he told me.

Wasn't that sweet!
