Little green fingers: part four

Welcome to part four of our little green fingers series. My little green-fingered friend has been busy in the garden again this week. It hasn’t been that warm, but we decided to get outside anyway and get digging in the garden.

We’ve had some lovely plants from Grandma for the garden so we have been busy finding homes for all of those.


  • Digging holes
  • Raking soil
  • Removing stones
  • Carrying flowers
  • Covering them with soil
  • Patting down around the flowers
  • Watering the flowers
  • Checking they were OK in their new home…

These were all the things the boys got involved in. They are so gentle with the flowers and there was lots of cute commentary during the planting process.


Houdini loves to get the tools out of the shed and potter around the garden, talking to the cows in the field about what we are doing…going back inside is never popular because being outside is so much fun!


Have you managed to get out in the garden much so far this week?

  1. yes you are right you can get them involved in things……. I am not really green fingered the most I have done is mowed the lawn, I would love to get out and have some pretty pots of plants like yourself lovely post #sharewithme

  2. Aww, lovely! Our boys love gardening too, unfortunately their weeding worries me, any plant could get ripped up! But they are good at the planting and watering parts. O is looking forward to the veg we’ve planted giving us food. 🙂 x

  3. Love this and the kids getting out and helping with nature. I really wanted to do some planting here in the states with my two and teach them a few things my momma taught me or her teach them too. lol Lovely post. Thank you so much for linking up to Share With Me #sharewithme
