For Christmas one of my grandparents sent Aurelia a basket with bulbs to watch grow. It was awesome! When we got the basket there were just a few little white tips sticking out of the dirt. About a week later they started poking up little green bits and next came the pretty flowers. The instructions said they would open one after the other and they did. Everyday there was a new flower until the whole basket was full of cute little purple flowers. Aurelia LOVED it. She liked checking on her purple flowers everyday and giving them water. They've been a big hit :) WAY awesome idea.
I wish I had gotten more pictures early on. The flowers came from Jackson & Perkins, so if you want to try the same thing you can go to www.jacksonandperkins.com :)
